Calling all creators! Join playwright and performer Gina Stevensen for a course in transforming your ideas into writing and then finally the stage. Together we will learn the importance of working as an ensemble, tricks and techniques for stage acting, storytelling, and playwriting! In just two weeks we will go from playing together as a group, to devising and writing original skits and scenes, and culminating in a Show & Tell of all our playful creations in Flynn Space! We're all ready to build some memories, all we need is you.
