If you come to all five workshops and stay the entire time, you will automatically be cast in the spring show!!! Congrats!

WEAR GYM CLOTHING!!
Sweatpants, yoga pants, legging, gym short, t-shirts, sweatshirts,
TENNIS SHOES!!

We will start every workshop like we would the rehearsals (with a run)
Then a workout (Arms, core, legs)
Finally we start with our very physical rehearsals

Please remember “Peter Pan” is a Physical Theatre Play (Physical is in the title, so you will get sweaty and hopefully get a workout when you are here).

With this series of workshops, I hope to delve into the story of Peter Pan and create the world of Neverland with you all. With a week for playing, we will create some physical theatre pieces for the Star-Warriors, Lost Boys, Pirates, and more!

In a devised project the beginning of the process is only in the random imaginations of each company member…YOU.  Acting for devised theatre requires more from the actor taking part than the interpretation of a well-known role.  Actors will need to be comfortable with improvisation; think quickly on their feet and be ready to try out ideas, no matter how outlandish.  You will need to work in a variety of different ways and styles, some of which may be familiar and some may not (dance, aerial, mime, etc.)  But for a committed actor, working in devised theatre will be one of the most creative experiences you will have as a performer.

However; be warned – devised theatre is not for those who want to play lead parts with fantastic amounts of lines.  It is, more than any other type of theatre, about being part of a team.  From the moment you step into these workshops, the director will be assessing the way that you work with others, how you play with ideas and how quickly you can turn an idea into a piece of theatre.  Because of this, the director might start casting people from the workshops and not wait to fill all parts during the auditions.

There are at least 30 speaking roles in this fantastical play, each I adore and I hope you will fall in love with them as well. Besides the speaking roles, there will be any number of non-speaking roles who will dance and be fairies, shadows, and wild beasts.  Enjoy yourself from the moment you walk through the door.  Be as open as you can and rather than worrying about whether you are going to get the part, put yourself 100 percent into any situation you may be given.

If you can’t be at all five workshops do not worry or fret, everyone still has to audition for a part.

Auditions:
