Out Of Character Improv Workshop


Out of Character- We all hear coaches, teachers and actors talk about character, but what does that mean? How does one build a character, become a character, stick to a character, what actually is a character? This 3 hour workshop will define what character means and add tools to your toolbox to create characters, sustain characters, and build scene "Out of Character". Taught by visiting teacher, Gillian Bellinger (Second City Hollywood faculty, I.O., Annoyance, and Westside Comedy).
