Event Notes


This summer join Theatre NorthWest's Artistic Associates as they host a series of workshops for local thespians, aspiring actors and those who wish to learn more about the craft of acting and auditioning. Participants are welcome to attend workshops individually or as a series.


In this first workshop of our summer series, participants will work a monologue from William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” in a group setting. We will begin by analyzing the text, unpacking the speech, and discussing how we perceive this character based on the text. The group will work on breaking down the monologue into beats and experimenting with different tactics for delivering the text. This workshop is designed to accommodate beginners as well as more experienced performers. By examining this text, participants will gain transferable skills to help them with audition pieces as well as prepare them for the other workshops in our summer series. This workshop will also touch on character development and will illustrate how many diverse interpretations can be created from a single piece of text.

The workshop will take place Saturday, July 23rd from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Theatre NorthWest and will be run by Artistic Associate Melissa Glover. A copy of the monologue will be provided along with pencils.

Pricing structure: These workshops are being offered on a "Pay What You Can" scale to ensure equitable access to all participants. Please select the price range that you require.
