Creating Your Solo Comedy Show
Saturday, January 13 @ 10:00 AM
Led by Kate Huffman
Award-winning actor, comedian, and solo-artist Kate Huffman will walk you through every step of creating a character-based solo show - from concept to production. A good portion of this workshop will focus on the development of character work, so even those without aspirations of creating a solo show but who are interested in characters will benefit.
There is space for 5 PREMIUM sign-ups to share and get feedback on a piece they are working on for the last portion of the class. These students will have the opportunity to perform a selection from a work in progress and receive notes.
- Time: 10am - 1pm
- Class size is limited to 20 students
- Open to all experience levels
