TCWs-Updated information!!!

Dear Friends,

I wanted to connect with you about the upcoming production of TCWs.   

I am very confident that this show will be a wonderful experience for all those who are part of the production.  TCWs will challenge our acting ability as we recreate multiple characters.  It is a show filled with many areas for the actor’s input as well as connecting with the audience (breaking down that fourth wall).

I am happy to announce that we will be having several workshops lead by:  J Hernandez, who has worked at venues such as: The Philadelphia Artists Collective, The New City Stage Company and The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater.  These workshops will be geared towards: “making the language accessible.   Reminding students that Shakespeare didn't write in a foreign language.   Taking them through various exercises, a few scenes, make them play around with the language, put it in their own words, then perform for each other and take a look at what it is they're working on themselves”.  J is a wonderful performer and well versed in improvisation and Shakespeare.

I look forward to working with everyone on this project.  I will see you Monday night.  If you would prefer to have some written material from the show instead of creating your own for the audition, please let me know.

Many thanks!
