Embracing Spectacle

This three-hour workshop tackles a much-avoided question: how can this sketch have MORE props, costumes, and tech cues? We’ll focus on writing visually, finding clever stagecraft solutions, and filling your work with elegant chaos. A sketch can be anything, so let’s make it an event. LGBTQIA+ identifying writers are strongly encouraged to sign up! Student must bring in a printed sketch (no more than four pages).

Prerequisite: Completion of Sketch 101 or equivalent experience
