April 2, 7 p.m.
How to Tell a Five-Minute, Slam Dunk Story
with Andrea Lovett
Come and enjoy a fun and thoughtful workshop to cultivate a story based on personal experience into a performance. Participants learn how storytelling differs from theater, stand up, or twisting balloon animals. You will explore the art of storytelling through guided sense memory, writing, performance, individual and group exercises. Participants will leave with a personal, ready-to-tell story for a stage or in a group, a packet of handouts, and a sense of accomplishment.
