“Developing Character”

A Five-Part Workshop with Aimee Albright

Monday, March 26th – Friday, March 30th; 1:00pm-4:00pm

$75 for the 5-day workshop, limited to 20 participants

In order to effectively tell a story, the audience needs to believe the characters we are trying to play. There are hundreds of ingredients that go into making somebody the person they are; their background, family, hobbies, their likes, and dislikes, their fears, their hopes, their dreams, their environment. The more depth we can show when playing characters on stage, the more interesting and relatable the story will be. In this week-long mini-camp, students will demonstrate the ability to understand what makes characters unique and learn how to develop the character they are playing so that the audience sees only the character and not the actor.
