Workshop: Text Based Character Study with Valerie Planche

SYNOPSIS: This workshop will focus on how to more fully use a script to make stronger character choices as an actor. We will explore how to go beyond the obvious, especially digging into the layers that the writer has set out - and how to find clues to those deeper meanings. We'll also look at our relationship to language, how active language can enhance our performances, and MORE! If you've ever wanted to gain more insight in breaking down a script, or are looking to expand your acting arsenal - this workshop is for you!

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Valerie is a Calgary based director, teacher, as well as a Betty Mitchell and Elizabeth Sterlings Haynes Award winning actor. She has facilitated acting classes for the last 20 years with MRC, U of C, Company of Rogues, and many more studios in Calgary. She has her Master's degree in Theatre Practice from the University of Alberta and was recently seen in Theatre Calgary's Liberation Days and Becky's New Car at Alberta Theatre Projects.
