Come and get your silly bone tickled
and your imagination awakened.
Dillon Porter (last seen at Teatro Luna Azul as Robbie in The Wake) will be leading a two hour workshop for aspiring actors. The class will cover the basic tenets of comedy and explore them using game play to sharpen the actors’ tools. We will cover Farce, Irony, Parody, Pastiche (‘spoof’), Satire, Slapstick, Surrealism and Wordplay. Keeping in mind that the audience wishes to seek amusement, we must first amuse ourselves.
When: Monday April 1st
Where: Teatro Luna Azul
Cost: 200 pesos
