What Makes a character?
Tired of being that same old you on stage and in scenes? Learn how to create unique and original characters by making strong, quick and clear choices.
Explore how to create characters through exploring physicality, vocal choices, and point of view. After learning how to make characters, your next goal is to remember your strong choices, through use of repetitions (character hooks) so that your character stays with you throughout the scene, format or show.
