This is a writing and performance class focused on creating original
characters that students can use on stage, in showcases or even reels.


This
class will use the concept of the "Game" so a background in other UCB
classes is preferred.  Students will be taught different strategies for
coming up with their characters and given tools to help breathe life
into them. By the end of class, students will have developed multiple
characters culminating in a class show where they will perform one 3-5
minute character monologue.


Please note:
Students will be expected to write and prepare characters outside of
class each week. You will perform those characters! You will write AND
perform!
Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone.

This
online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct
live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
