H.M.S. Pinafore: Finding Your True Voice

Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre 2020 Season

Thurs 13 February | 6pm

SALES FOR THIS WORKSHOP HAVE NOW CLOSED.  

Director Kate Gaul will be leading an acting and singing workshop for emerging musical theatre performers.

How do audiences connect with character? How do you bring your life experience, your aesthetic, your truth to a role? Musical theatre often demands a larger-than-life performance style but our quest as artists is always for truth on stage.

Kate’s workshop will challenge performers to work at scale truthfully, radically and with joy. This workshop is suitable for performers and directors.

All participants will join the initial warm-up (so come prepared to move).Participants can prepare a 1 minute (or less) monologue or song (a verse, a snippet that can be sung acapella) with which to work. You can prepare something with a scene partner (or a duet) or you can observe (it’s just as useful!).

Book your spot by clicking on the Book Now button. Then email us at marketing@shoalhavenentertainment.com.au and provide a 25-word snapshot of your (musical) theatre experience and tell us your age, and whether you have material to work with or will attend as an observer.

Kate is also running a workshop for schools. Click here for further information.
