The Work of August Wilson
7/27/24 and 11/23/24, 1:00 pm-5:00 pm

August Wilson has been compared to theatre giants such as Eugene O’Neill, Arthur Miller, and Tennessee Williams, but the truth is August Wilson is closer to Shakespeare. Wilson’s plays must be approached with rhythm, with music. One must analyze the Pittsburgh cycle like a sheet of music. In short, Wilson’s plays are the dramatic representation of The Blues. Join Brishen as we journey into the full Pittsburgh cycle. We will learn how to analyze August Wilson scripts as a director, designer, and performer.

Audition 101
10/26/24, 11:00 am-1:00 pm

From resumes to headshots to sides, Audition 101 is the perfect way to learn more about auditioning for the theatre. In this class, Kara Jönsson will cover the basics of a professional audition for the theatrical stage and students will leave with an audition toolkit that will equip them for future opportunities.

The Stage Play and the Screenplay
1/25/25 and 5/24/25, 11:00 am-1:00 pm

The stage and the screen are where we see stories come to life—Broadway, Hollywood, school plays, indie movies, and everything in between... but have you ever stopped to think about how different movies and plays really are? Have you ever considered their similarities? Your instructor, Peter Fenton, works professionally in both film and theater and will guide you through some basic differences between how movies and plays are written, acted, and produced—it all starts with a script. Peter Fenton is a writer and producer for both theater and film whose work has been seen Off-Broadway and on the international film festival circuit. Peter is also on staff as the Marketing & Engagement Associate with Passage Theatre Company.
