Workshops for Ethnically Diverse Actors
Are you an ethnically diverse actor or improviser who would like to learn how to improvise a musical?
Showstopper! The Improvised Musical are holding a full day workshop* on July 13th and 20th and we’d love you to join us for one of them.
The Olivier-award winning Showstoppers will share with you how to improvise musical theatre, on the spot. Through a series of exercises and scene work that use skills you already have, as well as new skills that we’ll share with you, you’ll gain the tools that are needed to improvise scenes, songs and choreography.
The ability to improvise is increasingly in demand by all aspects of theatre, so even if you’re not planning to do this professionally, you will have added a wealth of techniques to your arsenal, techniques that will assist you in auditions, make you sought after for R&Ds, and will prove invaluable when devising and/or writing projects.
Come play with The Showstoppers and refresh those performance skills that might have been laying dormant while our theatres have been closed.
When: July 13th or July 20th
Where: The Actors Centre
What Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm
How Much: Free
Who is it for? Ethnically diverse performers who are interested in exploring the world of theatrical improvisation.
How do I apply? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your Spotlight pin or CV, your preferred date and why you would like to take part. Places are limited to 12 and the closing date for applications is June 25th. Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis, whilst taking into consideration gender balance.
