Workshop 3: Text Analysis & Character Development

Sunday, February 11, 10:00am-1:00pm or

Tuesday, February 13, 7:00pm-10:00pm

Fly by Night Productions’ Jennifer Hale (Viola in LCP’s 2017 production of Twelfth Night) and Aerie Theatre’s Aimee Adler (recently appeared in LCP’s production of La Ronde, directed by Heinar Piller) take you on a journey through Text Analysis and Character Development, focusing on developing your character with evidence that is supplied in the text itself. What does your script tell you? How can you search for and find clues in the text to make decisions about your character? What does it mean when an author uses a period instead of an exclamation point? How can different parts of speech inform your character choices?

All of this and more is covered in this workshop where you’ll work on selections from scripts, focusing on character work and development, and take home tools to do the same with all of your future roles.
