New Play Development

How does an actor help a play get from page to stage? The spring 2021 Actors Ensemble zeroes in on the process of new play development. How do you approach the text and be in a room when a play has never been performed before? Led by local artists Kimiya Shokri (middle school) and Michael Gene Sullivan (high school), actors learn to make bold choices and communicate effectively to embrace their roles as artistic collaborators. Combining practice scenes and Q & A panels with experts in new play development, this course will culminate in a public presentation of new scenes and /or short plays.
