TheatrePEI Course Re-offer! - Reminder

Course Re-offer!  TheatrePEI’s Spring Workshop: THE DIRECTOR’S CHAIR

This course is the “101” of directing essentials. It will define the basics of scenic action and intention and help guide directors through the process of getting actors off the page and onto the stage. The course will conclude with directed presentations of scenes. Participants must be prepared to take on acting roles for fellow directors.

For more information on this course…

N.B. ACT will consider funding up to 50% of various workshops, including this one. If you are an ACT member and would like to take this course, please contact a member of the executive (or contact me by clicking on Past-President below). Dollars have been set aside in the budget for this kind of activity, but they are limited. Don’t wait too long before applying for them.

Fundamentals of Truthful Acting

PEI Theatre Festival Workshops
Fundamentals of Truthful Acting with Duncan McIntosh

A theatre technician once said to me - I know how to build a set, a costume, a lighting plot -  in fact, everything you need in the theatre. The one thing I don’t know how to build is a character. This workshop is an introduction to building a character.

Warm-ups, games, text and exercises from the silly to the sublime are used to help you build confidence, strengthen your technique and explore your own unique instrument.

Reusable Set Building Workshop

Now that we have access to some storage space, we should start to put together ‘reusable’ sets. The set for JC Superstar may not be appropriate for this, but certainly Lend Me a Tenor will be. This show requires a box set. As many shows require box sets, this will be a great opportunity to design and build a modular type of set that can easily be modified for different productions. I have spoken with Garnet Gallant (who is on the Confederation Centre stage crew) and he has expressed interest in conducting a workshop or series of workshops, to build this type of set. 

Theatre PEI would be interested in co-sponsoring this workshop, it as long as it was open to the general public.

The workshop won’t be happening until next fall or possibly later.

ACT Logos

Here is the logo, in colour and in black & white.

These are 300dpi, which should work for most uses.  If you need higher resolution (or a professional printer would like), I can send those, up to about 1200dpi.  Such a file would be 16 times the size of these.  Let me know if there is a need for higher resolution.
