In this workshop you will learn new ways to quickly find unique and fun characters on stage. Finding characters that have the “laugh factor” will heighten and bring life to any scene. You will discover ways to create new characters in the first few moments of a scene. This ability is beneficial for long form and short form performances. In addition to finding these characters we will discuss how to remember them for future scenes. This will be fun and silly workshop that will help open up the characters inside you!
