Do you hate theatre styles because you think Chekhov is the navigator of the Enterprise? Whatʼs the difference between a monologue and a soliloquy and why should you care? May I be a deus ex machina? (Yes.)|
These and other puzzling bits of information available only to theatrically trained actors can be yours! In only 6 short weeks weʼll look at monologues, scenes, blocking,
dialects, styles and lazzi* more! Handouts with terminology, glossaries, bibliographies abound! (Who needs trees?)
Join me in sussing out the mysterious world of the theatre, the way of my people, and use it to make your improv more grounded, structured and purposeful!
Instructor Sue Ellen Reiman has been in theatre for over 4 decades.

She holds both a BFA and MA in theatre and has taught improv, acting and other related subjects at UCO and in workshops and residencies statewide for over 20 years. She does improv, too.
"To cross or counter cross - that is the question."
