About TheaterWorks!: TheaterWorks! workshops teach performance and writing skills to working people. Participants write and perform their own short plays based on their work and caregiving experiences, and perform them before an invited audience. The workshop will begin with theater exercises aimed at uncovering the dramatic potential of everyday stories. As the workshop progresses we will experience the power of performance to change our lives. In a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, TheaterWorks! participants will write their own short plays. The workshop will end with a performance of participants’ work in which you will perform your work alongside professional actors and with the guidance of professional directors. All levels of writers are welcome. Continue reading Due Feb 2 | Applications for Theater Works! Performance/Playwriting Workshop on Caregiving at CUNY→
