This 4-week series for adults will hone our presence, performance, and storytelling skills. Based on the interests of the class, we will look at Storytelling:
• as a medium to connect with each other during this strange time of social distancing
• as a tool to connect with our audiences anytime and in any venue: virtually or in person; in traditional theatre settings, in meetings with our teams and colleagues at work; around our own kitchen tables
• and, if there is interest, as source material for composed, devised, or scripted theatre pieces.

WOMEN WHO RUN WITH WOLVES
Online Spring – May 26 thru June 19
Wednesdays 7-8:30pm
Instructor: Barbara E. Johnson
Suggested Donation: $60

A four week series illuminating your current Soul drama, somewhere shining off the pages of the NYT’s best-seller, Women Who Run with the Wolves. Author Dr. C.P.Estes, Jungian psychiatrist and performer, details the wisdom of the fairy tale to unveil the all-knowing, wild woman, in each of us, whether female or male. This engaged archetype awakes us to our creative journey of becoming a true human being, aglow with originality.

Expressive Arts Therapist, B.E. Johnson, using this sensational primer as Guide, leads each member to self-examine the challenges of where you are now, where you are called, and how to get there. Approaches include expressive arts, theater exercises, movement, music, and applied psychodrama, with weekly reading assignment. A copy of the book is required.

Fairy tales pose real life questions: Are you falling asleep at the stream? Blindly switching good messages for bad? Sorting seeds from dirt? Tending the fire? Facing down the predator?

The facilitator has explored and immersed in the wisdom of fairy tales through trainings with Dr. Estes since 2013. Come and “sing over your bones” by re-fleshing the wild woman archetype in you!

INTRO TO STAND-UP COMEDY
Online Spring – May 26 thru June 19
Grades 10-Adult
Thursdays 7-9pm
Instructor: John Mooney
Suggested Donation: $60

Have you ever dreamed of doing stand-up comedy? Have you ever seen a comic on TV or in a club and thought to yourself, “I think I’m funnier than they are.” You just might be. The only difference is they’re doing it…and you’re not. Why don’t we change that? In this four-week course you’ll be given the tools to create 3-5 minutes of stand-up material.
You’ll learn:

• What makes you funny
• How to craft a punchline from a clear premise, including the “rule of three,” subverting expectations, expanding your material when you need to, being improvisational
• Knowing your audience, and how to adjust on the fly
• Stand-up “mechanics” (how to hold the mic, how to be in your body, etc.)
• How to deal with hecklers
• The business of stand-up

As a bonus, we’ll learn how to hone material for remote performances via Zoom while the world practices social distancing.

Most people are terrified to do stand-up, but when it works, there is nothing like it.

I can’t make you funny, but chances are, if you’re interested in being a part of this course, you’re funny to someone besides yourself! Let’s work on making you the best funny you that you can be!
