Event Description

Tuesday March 16 6:00pm-8:00pm

Mindy McHale's popular online workshop is BACK with a special Women's History Month edition excluisvely for women and femmes. If you’ve ever lingered on the back line, hesitated before making a move because you worried you couldn’t pull it off, let an entering character take over a scene, or simply felt mired in self-doubt while improvising, this is the workshop for you. Mindy McHale will lead you through exercises to help break your mental barriers and lose the limits you’ve consciously or subconsciously set for yourself; and guide a supportive and judgment-free discussion of what those limits are and where they come from, including discussion of how these struggles can be shaped by gender. Skills practiced will include following your gut, comfort being alone on stage, active silence, and handling freeze-ups. 

Workshop is 6-8pm 

Instructor: Mindy McHale

Registration: $25
