      Simple Keys to Authentic Acting: A Workshop for Women in Theatre

      The Hamilton Gibson Women’s Project will present a workshop for women to explore monologues for the stage. In place of the previously scheduled “Shakespeare on its Feet” workshop, this class will focus on four simple principles of authentic acting, and how we can trust and bring more of ourselves to the characters that we play. Based on the teaching method of well-respected Broadway and film actress, E. Katherine Kerr, we will discuss and explore these principles using our chosen monologues as the format. Kerr’s handbook, The Four Keys, is available to order through From My Shelf Books in Wellsboro for anyone wishing to purchase and read the book prior to the workshop. 

      If you would like some guidance or help in choosing a monologue, please let us know when you register and make sure we have your email address. Memorization is helpful and optional, but you’ll want to be familiar with whatever material you choose. Monologues should be approximately 2 minutes in length. 

      Women ages 16 and up are welcome to register for either the morning session OR the afternoon session, maximum 8 enrollees per session. Bring your own bag lunch (beverages provided) for a 1pm lunch break where all enrollees from both sessions are invited to learn about the fall 2021 Women’s Project production of original monologues, as well as Stray Cats, another upcoming show planned for this fall that is also comprised of monologues. We will practice safe distancing at both the workshop and lunch break. 

      Time:   Session 1 - 10:30am - 1:00pm

                  Session 2 -   2:00pm - 4:30pm

      Location: The pavilion at Nessmuk Lake

      Cost: $15
