Essential Elements of Acting: Actor's Inspiration- Costumes & Characters

In this debut workshop, Kaibrina Sky Buck, resident foolsFURY Designer and Ryan OâDonnell, long-time foolsFURY actor, will lead you through the relationship between costume and character, designer and actor, inner and outer inspiration.
