(ages 55 and up)
Perfect for newcomers and aspiring playwrights. Beginning with basic theatre games, participants are guided to develop characters and progress to writing short 2-3 person scenes or, if time permits, a parody of a book or play. Participants will direct as well as perform the scenes. Class will culminate in a stage reading of the work written during class. No previous experience necessary. Just bring an open mind and be ready to have fun! Facilitator Mare Akana has performed Off-Broadway and has 16 years of experience facilitating a drama group, creative writing and playwriting. We will meet every other Wednesday.
