MULTIPLE CHARACTER TUNE UP WEEKEND WORKSHOP!

with Julia McNeal

Saturday & Sunday | June 23 & 24 | 10am – 3pm | The Marsh Berkeley
Tuition: $300
Full tuition is due at the time of registration for all classes

Description:

If you have a Fringe spot coming up and want to be 100% ready;

If you are you mid-show-development and want to get clearer about what makes your characters tick;
If they need some deepening, specificity, a little honing at the edges;
If you want to get adept at switching from one character to another on a dime;
or
If you just want get to know them better and portray them truly, fully, and clearly, this Multiple-Character Tune-Up is for you.
We will go over the basics of my Playing Multiple Characters Technique and work specifically on your current needs.
We’ll look at up to three of the characters in your script, get clear about who they are and how they appear onstage, and get skillful about switching from one to another with specificity and ease.
If you’ve worked with me privately, or haven’t had the chance, this is a rare opportunity to do this work in a group setting. You will get confidence and clarity about what works, whether you are up there yourself or watching someone else.  

All levels are welcome.
Participants should come prepared with written material for up to three characters.
(We can work on more than three, if we have time.)
Memorized is preferable, but reading off the page is also acceptable.
You’ll be able to achieve more if you don’t need to hold the script – but please bring it, either way.

Don’t worry if the words aren’t perfect yet; bring what you have. You can rewrite, if you need to, after the weekend is over.

Julia’s character work is recommended by David Ford, Mark Kenward, and Rebecca Fisher. juliamcnealarts.com
