A script-in-hand concert of a work-in-progress sharing of a play with music, created by Jonesalee, Inc--Gina Stewart and Brenda Lee Gambill The work-in-progress is followed by moderated Q&A to gather feedback for generating artists. Comprised of a series of vignettes, this play with music observes and explores the tiny, teeming with life and “life lessons” of the insect world. Rich with scientific fun facts, folklore and legend, the story of BUGS is told by musician/actors who operate large, tactile puppets. The cast of characters embody ancient wisdom in this imaginative romp through the science, socialization and the spiritual significance of insects. It explores the interconnectedness and interdependence of all life forms, cause and effects of actions, all the while shedding light on early socialization skills. Reservations by emailing [email protected] Pay what you can collected at the door About the Series: Under the guidance of ACA Resident Artists the INCUBATOR series provides rehearsal and performance space, dramaturgical and artistic support, including (as necessary) direction, casting, musical composition support, and puppetry; and marketing support. Artistic feedback is offered using the Liz Lerman Critical Response Process that allows artists to have their vision expressed and examined following a supportive and artist-centered method. Past participants include David and Jack Novak, whose play with music, JOURNEYING JACK went on to win The Aurand Harris Memorial Playwriting Award.

Lace Larrabee What happens when a former beauty queen bartender from South Georgia decides to do stand-up comedy? Nothing short of comedic gold. Lace Larrabee was selected to compete in the 2012 She Devil Comedy Festival held in NYC. She was featured in, "Organic: A Comedy Tour & Documentary" which took place in 22 cities over a span of 30 days. Lace takes the stage like a lady and then punches you in the face like a sailor with her first punchline. She makes an audience understand why what she is saying is funny, not by explaining it, but merely by telling the joke the way she knows it should be told her way.

Sharp and clever, Matt & Ben succeeds!” – The New York Times “A hit! Acidic, funny and affectionate! Matt & Ben spoofs Hollywood’s best friendship!” – The New York Post

Description:
Writers are often daunted by the idea of reading their work aloud, whether in a classroom situation or public presentation. This workshop will teach writers to see their reading as a gift to their audience. Using the same tools employed by professional actors, you will learn to prepare and present confident, clear public readings and to use reading aloud as a valuable self-editing tool. Neither acting nor public speaking experience is necessary to benefit from the craft of acting. During the course of this workshop you will: ▪    Bring a piece of your work you wish to read (one page, double-spaced, two copies). ▪    Be led in voice and body warm-ups using breathing and vocal exercises. ▪    Read aloud excerpts of published works by other writers to study pacing, phrasing, word choice and themes. ▪    Be coached individually by Mel as you read your work, with the class observing. ▪    Time permitting, you will get a second opportunity to read for the class integrating the techniques you've learned. FAQs   What's the refund policy The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may cancel your registration up until 5 p.m. on May 13, 2017, via Eventbrite for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.
