Our dear friend, Dina Facklis, is back in the big D for shows and workshops. She'll be performing on Friday, July 13th at 9PM with Local Honey! She's also offering two workshops on Saturday, July 14th:
SNL Monolgue Workshop 1-3PM ($35) Come into this workshop with nothing and leave with an audition/character piece for Saturday Night Live (or shows of the like). Also get the lowdown on the SNL audition process and preparing characters and writing packets for showcases. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!
Scene Intensive Part DEUX 3:30-5:30PM ($35) What if I told you that the only thing getting in the way of a great scene was YOU! This workshop will get you out of your head and into a character while focusing on commitment and point of view. (if you took my last scenic intensive, this will be VERY different, hence the "part 2") It will also give you insight as to where to go when the scene is "tanking!) CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
