PHYSICAL COMEDY WORKSHOP!!

 

The old expression “tragedy is easy, comedy is hard” has never been more true than when it comes to physical comedy. Understanding the body’s behavior, rhythms, and natural abilities is the first step towards gaining the freedom to create truly hilarious work. This three-hour workshop will provide performers with an on-their-feet investigation of physical comedy. It will use a grab bag of methods including clowning, mask work, slapstick, rhythm and timing, status play, and more to give performers the opportunity to tap into their unique brand of physically comic play.

The Glass Menagerie By Tennessee Williams | Directed by Maxwell Williams |March 18 - April 3

The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theatre, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author. Williams’ elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway – the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this “memory play” has made it one of America’s most powerful, timeless, and compelling works of theatre. Renowned for its vivid characters, exquisitely written dialogue, and absorbing story, The Glass Menagerie promises to move, to entrance and to dazzle.
