Keep It Real (Week Seven)

Instructor(s): Private: Robert Ricks
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Do you ever wish people would listen to what you have to say? Come learn how to create believable characters based on yourself, teens you know, or your ability to empathize imaginatively with teens you don’t know. Tell the world what it’s like to be on the front edge of adolescence. We’ll read monologues (dramatic speeches) and scenes for teens (including those written by other young people) before writing our own. We’ll take risks while we learn about acting, characterization, and voice. At the end of the workshop, we’ll perform our own pieces or choose actors from among us to let our characters speak from the stage for an audience.
