In this workshop, students will receive their scenes the week before the workshop.

John will focus on the PREP with students; breaking down their scripts, diving into their characters, and all the “homework” that goes into “preparation”. John will not offer specific direction, but rather allow the students to make their own choices based upon their preparation. 

John will also host a virtual class (Wednesday, April 10th) for students desiring a little extra prep time. 

On Saturday, April 13th, directly following their session with John, students will PERFORM their scene for Carol. She will watch what the students came up with then offer redirects on their performance. Students will have an opportunity to impress Carol with their ability to take notes on their prepared work and immediately implement them into their performance!
