ArtsNashoba Winter Workshops
This Winter Season ArtsNashoba is proud to host three fantastic workshop programs run by some very talented individuals. The schedule is as follows:
Monologues & Public Speaking
Building a Character
Auditioning for a Musical
Monologues & Public Speaking
will be held in the Fireplace Room at the Parish House, Union Congregation Church, 220 Main Street in Groton.
Says instructor JulieAnn Govang: "Preparing for an audition, speaking engagement, or class presentation is NOT EASY! Preparation of your material is key, but what's MORE crucial? Preparing YOURSELF, especially for those who are a bit shy or more introverted.”
This workshop is an opportunity to take a short reading or monologue, present it to the class, and discuss how to make it (and you) as well-received as possible. Advanced memorization requested, but not required. $10/person.
Recommended for ages 10 and up. Class Limit: 25.
Building a Character,
held at the Page-Hilltop Elementary School Cultral Arts Room 115 on Washington Street in Ayer.
Also run by JulieAnn, will touch on the process of creating a character, and then - with games and activities - allow young actors to create different characters for different situations in very fun ways. Says Govang, “An actor pretends to be someone or something else to fill a role in a story. The trick is all in how the actor 'becomes' who or what they're supposed to be! There's no switch to flick or button to push. They must build a character to become a character!”
Recommended for ages 8 to 13 (though all are welcome). $10/person; $7 siblings and Page-Hilltop students. Class limit: 25.
The last workshop of the season,
Auditioning for a Musical,
ran by Instructor/Musical Director Jason Whiting will be at First Parish Unitarian Church Vestry, 1 Powder House Road in Groton.
This workshop addresses the questions, “Are you confident when you audition for a musical?,” “Did you choose the right song?,” “Are you presenting yourself well?,” as well as “What is a director looking for in an audition?” This workshop will touch on all these things, give an opportunity for participants to try out an audition* that they've prepared, or learn as a group singing together and asking questions about the process.
Ages 8-18 welcome. $15/person; $12 siblings. (*Those individuals who would like to perform as part of the workshop must come prepared with sheet music in their key.)
Sign-ups for ArtsNashoba’s spring musical begin 12/1/13, and roles will be auditioned for after the first of the year. This workshop is a perfect opportunity to get a bit of practice in beforehand!
