Virtual Theatre Production Workshop - Session 2 (ages 8-14)
The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life on Earth
Daytime talk TV reaches new atmospheric heights in this intergalactic virtual comedy with a wild, wacky cast of space aliens, Earth monsters, and surprise guests!
Alien host of “Earth Talk Tonight,” Valendia Vortex, and her rambunctious invertebrate sidekick, Troq, are on the search for superior beings on the planet Earth. So they call upon the monsters of the world to prove their universal mettle! But vampire “Vladdy” is plain old batty. Frankenstein is frenzied. Wolfie is just a hyper pup. And Invisible Woman’s extraordinary gift is really no gift at all! Making matters more embarrassing for these mediocre monsters are their respective special guests, each more vexing than the monsters themselves. It turns out that some special powers aren’t as special as they seem and that intelligent life is in the eye of the beholder.
In this online class students will learn actor's warm-ups, learn about theatre terminology, work on character development, and more as they prepare for the virtual (pre-recorded) performance. Classes will be held in an online group setting.
