Do you fantasize about being the next great Canadian Solo Theatre performer? Have you ever watched a one-person play and thought, “I could do that!”? Join Elena Belyea, creator of Miss Katelyn’s Grade Threes Prepare for the Inevitable and graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada’s Playwriting Program, for this in-depth crash-course in how to create and craft a brand new solo show from scratch. Through writing exercises, improvisations, and on-our-feet explorations, you’ll leave this class with a wide variety of tools for generating and refining new work, no matter what your genre. (Some performance/writing experience is useful but not necessary).
