Studio (TWS 101) is an introduction to The Theatre of Western Springs and an acting workshop. We will use exercises and improvisation to work on basic acting concepts and then apply them to monologues which you will present on stage for friends and family during your final class session. We will also let you know how things work at TWS in terms of volunteering, casting, and anything else we can think of. TWS 101 is open to the public and all levels of experience are welcome. -- Participants who are NOT interested in acting will be introduced to several technical areas of the theatre and work “backstage” for the final presentation. Non-Actors will have a different schedule to be worked out with the instructor.
ACTORS – We’d like you to attend all sessions. Sessions 1, 5, 9 & 10 are mandatory. You can miss up to two of the remaining sessions.
