Event Description

Join a small group for a 5 week workshop series designed to focus creatively on telling stories. At each session Cindy will lead some skill building activities with vocal, physical and character work. Then there will be time for individuals to get supportive feedback and coaching on their stories.  The last session will be a studio performance for invited listeners.

Participants are invited to bring a story, or a story idea, to work on. This is an opportunity to have a longer time slot (approximately 12-15 minutes, for one or two stories) than is usually allowed at slams or open mics, with the chance to share your work at the conclusion.
