SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: The Turn with Georgie Aldaco

You have a great sketch idea, you love it, you're two pages in and then... you hit a wall. Game-wise it feels like you've got nowhere left to go. But you do! Take an unexpected, hold onto your hats, wild outta left field turn. When you veer off the road you sometimes find the most interesting part of the journey. In this workshop, students will bring a sketch they feel like they've played out and we'll work together to find a great turn that'll surprise, tickle and kill the audience.

* 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 $55.
