Whether you’ve had the opportunity to participate as a high schooler, volunteered at previous workshops, or this is the first time you’re seeing these words..GET EXCITED! Because two weeks from today, Wednesday, November 11th, is KSTO Workshop Day!
Workshops is a day where we invite high schoolers from around Kansas to come and see what being a theatre student at K-State is all about. Here is a general outline for the day:
8 a.m. – Schools arrive, we all eat donuts, and we have a brief meeting to overview the day.
9 a.m. – Students will go on guided tours through our three theatre stages.
10 a.m. – Students will break off into workshops of their choosing. There will be two sessions, with six options per session (for a total of 12 different workshops).
Noon – Everyone breaks for lunch!
1 p.m. – Students are invited to watch A Christmas Carol’s final dress rehearsal!
The workshops include: monologue preparation, cold reading advice, physicality in acting, character movement, lighting techniques, improvisation, directing, playwrighting, stage management, vocal health techniques, stage combat, and behind the scenes of A Christmas Carol.
As you can see the day is packed, but packed with fun, and we need YOUR help! We need volunteers to run and assist each workshop, be tour guides, and be overall assistants for the day. (Keep your class schedule in mind, but know that no theatre classes will take place on workshop day)
If you would like to participate, please comment with your top three choices. (Make sure to denote whether you’d prefer to be the leader or the assistant in regards to running a workshop. As a workshop leader you will work with your assistant to create the workshop yourself!).
If you have any questions, please email Mallory (firstname.lastname@example.org)
