Sod House Theater – Acting Workshops & Auditions
June 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:45 pm
Sod House Theater of Minneapolis will offer free music and acting workshops led by professional theater artist Luverne Seifert and professional musicians Brian Laidlaw and Ashley Hanson.
6p to 7:15p: We will introduce stage techniques of physical comedy; slaps, kicks, trips, falls, fixed points and awkward timing decisions. Participants will develop a 1-2 minute comedy routine that they will develop and perform. No preparation necessary. Dress to move comfortably.
7:30 to 8:45p Hometown Ballad Songwriting Workshop – In this workshop, you will share stories about your community, discuss the craft songwriting, and start to turn stories shared into original songs. Open to all ages and levels of experience; singers, musicians, and writers encouraged to attend; instruments are invited, but not required.
During the workshops they will also hold an information session and call for actors, musicians and volunteers to participate in their performance of “An Enemy of the People” – a site-specific performance that will take place August 20 through August 26 in Virginia and Ely Minnesota. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! We provide a playful and safe environment to learn skills for performance.
Please let others who may be interested know about this event, AND let me know if you can be there, even if it’s only for the workshops, come find out what it’s about. Thanks everyone!
