Hello, it’s Carol, sending you the word on my upcoming Story Theater workshop, August 6th though the 10th, here in Door County, Wisconsin. I hope you can come, to play theater games and find your roles in something wonderful.Last summer we mounted a Chekhov story (Whitebrow), a Grimm’s fairy tale (The Blue Light) and ten Mother Goose vignettes, all a great joy. Everyone involved found the group rehearsal process stimulating; advanced players and newcomers, in the same boat together, found the way to realize Paul Sills’ story theater form. It is an inspiring way to enter literature and arrive at unique staging. Spolin theater games support the play at each stage of rehearsal. The final (tenth) workshop was a performance event for a very small invited audience, followed by a little party.
You can view pictures from 2011 here, and if you go here, you will find more details about the 2012 workshop, and the ability to register. Hope you can come; it is ‘half full’ now, but if you still have yet to plan your summer adventure, do jump onboard! I will be assisted by my daughter, Rachel Sills. It is happening in August this year, as many teachers are freer then than in July. I hope this finds you very well, and I’d love to hear from you.
