Character Bootcamp
Instructor: Resident Playwright Emma Stanton

Take a concentrated dive into character development in this two-day bootcamp. Through introduction to certain exercises, you will explore the voice and point of view of the character, how the character behaves in space and in relation to others, and also, have the opportunity to create, collaborate and then revise your work with professional actors for a final presentation at the end of the second day. Walk away with not only a broader perspective of your characters, but helpful tools to approach your future work.

About Special Topics Courses

Special Topics coursework is designed to focus on and often expand upon important topics presented in the Tiered tracks. Various formats are offered, from  the 2-day bootcamps where you will get a concentrated introduction or taste of other workshops, to intensives that take you through 3-4 days of targeted exercises, or the 6-7 week classes that deep-dive into important skill-building for progression of work.
