Workshop Schedule



Play’n the Mainstage

Would you like to play on the Arcade downstairs theater and discover its secrets? Then join us for Play’n on the Mainstage. In this two hour workshop, participants identify challenges of the space and develop ways to use it to their advantage. Through active participation and audience observation, students will gain confidence and increase their enjoyment during performance. Although the focus is primarily on the creative use of our beautiful new stage, veteran improv teacher Kristy Nolen provides insightful and instructive improv notes throughout. Ready? Let’s Play… on the Mainstage!
