Finding Your Voice

Virtual Program Virtual Program

September 7 @ 1:00 pm 3:30 pm Eastern

This five-week class meets on Saturdays: September 7, 14, 21, 28, and October 5.

This class explores what it means to have a voice – in society, in a meeting room, in artistic practice, in public speaking situations, or in personal relationships. Students will use techniques drawn from The Theatre Lab’s award-winning Life Stories methodology to discover exactly what they have to say and to gain power and confidence in saying it. Each student will focus on the communication scenarios most important to them, with the dual goal of empowering the self and gaining.

This class has an online graduation show on Saturday, October 19 where participants will perform for an audience of friends, family, and the community.
