SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: Play Fast/ Play Slow with Billy Merritt

Using acting exercises taught in my Improvised One Acts class, we explore how picking up the pace can make scenes more personal and raise the stakes, and slowing down the pace can find hidden meanings.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING!

Maximum class size is 16.

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll.  The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $50.
