Prerequisite: Absolute Beginner
This class will pick up where we left off in Absolute Beginner with the continued study of first beat emotionally committed scenes, character status, environment work,  patterns and how to mine your own life for the truths that work on stage. We will take all of it and begin to work on a form that combines true monologues with scenes born from them. Oh, and there will be tons of games and fun, too. The class will finish with a class showcase where you can invite your family and friends to enjoy all of the amazing skills you will have developed over the 6 weeks.

Calling all teens (entering 9th grade through 12th grade)!

The teen classes will run if there are 8 or more students registered.
