The Unified Scene Theater's Storytelling for Performance Class begins Tuesday, 07-10-2018


The Unified Scene Theaters Storytelling for Performance Class Begins Tuesday, July 10th (only FOUR slots left!)

Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time as a way for us to relate to each other and give meaning to our experiences. However, in more recent years, oral storytelling has grown as a performance art, allowing us to perfect the art of telling, and shape our stories into compelling narratives that educate, entertain, inspire and often transform perception.

In our four-week class (Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., July 10th through, August 7th — four weeks of instruction with a graduation show the evening of week five, on August 7th)we will teach you the art of storytelling for performance, including:
·       Identifying the stories in our lives that make for great content. Everyone has stories to tell and you will shut down the inner censor that might be telling you the opposite.
·       Learning the narrative structure of a story, and how to apply these critical elements to yours
·       Practicing with peers to help shape each other’s pieces week-over-week.
·       Gaining feedback, critical to getting better
·       Shaping your story for an audience.
·       Working with coaches who help guide your piece into an 8-10 minute performance piece.
·       Performing on stage in a graduation showcase and having the opportunity to invite friends and family to see you perform
·       Team taught by co-founders Kathy Baird Westfall and Shawn Westfall
