Join us for some virtual theater-making!  In our four workshops you’ll be exploring theater-making techniques on your own, in pairs and as an ensemble.

Over the course of four sessions we’ll explore how to create imaginative characters and scenes, how to collaborate with other writers and performers over Zoom, and together we will build an entirely new and original piece of theater, which can be recorded and shared.
