Working with theater professional and The Merc’s Artistic Director Ki Gottberg, students will learn specific techniques in acting, stagecraft, voice, and movement in this four-day workshop. With a strong focus on preparing the body and the voice for stage work, participants will learn how an actor uses body and mind as an instrument to bring out meaning in text. Workshop sessions will provide an exploration into the craft of acting and will also develop life skills such as ensemble building, self-confidence, and public speaking. Focus on the process rather than the end product will be emphasized. This intensive workshop is designed to compliment summer working schedules by spanning two weekends for three and a half hours each day.
Supported by The Methow Valley Fund, this valuable educational experience is for actors, teachers, lawyers, leaders, or those that want to be. Students in 8th grade and above will learn critical skills, not just onstage, but for life! Adults are encouraged to participate.
