Acting Basics Workshop

In this fun beginner-level class, students will learn beginning skills of acting by playing theatre games, creating characters, and working on text. How can a costume piece or a headache or thinking of your favorite dessert change how you express yourself? How does it affect the way you interact with the people around you? Build confidence in acting and have lots of fun! A great class for beginners and beyond ages 12 to adult. This workshop is taught by Jenn Adams.
