Queer Character Workshop

This workshop will be run exactly like a rehearsal for UCBTNY's Characters Welcome house teams: each student will perform a solo character monologue and get feedback on their piece. If time permits, we'll work on fleshing out pitches for other characters as well. Your character is not required to wear a boa and kitten heels, but it is encouraged. ;)

Prerequisite: Completion of Character 101 or equivalent experience

This class is for LGBTQIA+ identifying writer/performers only.
