Explore Your Dark Side with Jessica Arjet
Tuesdays, October 3 – October 17 (3 weeks) 7-9pm

In this series of workshops you will delve into how to be evil, mean, or just plain bad on stage.  You’ll learn how to play realistic characters who have different perspectives, jerks who provide a helpful antagonist for your protagonist, and characters evil people who will make larger than life bad decisions to keep the story going. Then, you’ll learn how to react to these characters when you find them on stage. You’ll delve into being sad, lonely, scared and angry – in a way that the audience can relate to and feel sympathy for.  After this workshop you can be as bad as you wanna be, and everyone will love you for it!
