Our educational series is called Let’s Play! and is intended to further the skills and techniques of our local theater artists while introducing the community to basic performing concepts through theater education and hands-on activity. Our company of Let’s Play! actors keep Let’s Play! fresh and exciting. The Let’s Play! company is currently accepting applications for the 2018 season. Find out about our past and upcoming Let’s Play! events on the News & Updates page.
Second Saturday Workshops
In an effort to make theater education accessible to all, we hold free workshops on second Saturdays of most months. Our company of actors host improvisation games, readings, and storytelling at the workshops and anyone can participate.
Masterclasses are for performers looking to develop specific skills in order to pursue a career in theater. Our series of masterclasses is held in the summer, and we host one to two guest artists for each. This is an opportunity for intensive training in a specialized area with experienced professionals. See our past offerings.
Our company of actors makes Let’s Play! new and exciting each month. Auditions are held for company placement in January each year. Company members are volunteers and can sometimes be found at community events playing improvisational games or holding storytelling sessions. If you would like to request our company members at your event or class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Let’s Play Company is currently taking applications for the 2018 season.
In addition to developing performing talents, we work on the development of plays written by local playwrights and plays that clearly articulate our mission. Occasionally we host Second Saturday workshops for development of short plays and scenes, allowing playwrights to bring short pieces of work to get an initial read by actors. For more intensive work, a week long workshop can be held with our company to work on a more fully developed play.
We are in the process of developing a theater education tour designed specifically for schools. Two to three company members will travel to schools in the region to work with students on telling stories using action and dialogue. If you would like to be included in our list of interested educators, let us know.
