Solo Show Workshop
From Your Life to the Stage: Crafting Solo Theatre
From story idea to standing ovation, a series of hour-long workshops dedicated to creating, marketing and performing your solo show. These workshops are currently presented digitally, but from 2022 onward can also be done in-person at theatres, festivals and schools.
Where to Start: exploring the elements of what makes a successful and compelling solo show, picking/honing a topic and learning how to begin writing.
Writing the Script: from the first draft to a finished script. Deciding what elements best serve the show, building a dramatic arc, revising and polishing. Dramaturgy and feedback.
Preparing the Show: Rehearsal process to tech script. Is a director necessary? Putting in sound and light cues. Choosing set, props and costumes. Creating a show budget.
Marketing and Performing: From poster design to music rights. Find a fit for your show. How to write a press release, arranging performances/bookings, designing a show flyer.
