Teaching Artist Stephanie Lazenby will launch a full year of her riotously popular adult comedy performance workshops, Couch to Mic, on Tuesdays beginning October 1. Couch to Mic is a four week adult comedy performance class where participants will improvise, workshop, and write three minutes of comedy. “It could be stand up, news commentary like a correspondent on The Daily Show or maybe a short sketch. It’s your choice,” explains Stephanie. The Open Mic Performance on Tuesday, October 29 at 7.30pm
NTHP will continue to offer professional development and creative experiences to adults on the first Saturday of every month this season. “We wanted to tie each workshop into our MainStage programming,” says Stewart. “We have a season theme of ‘Can One Person Make A Difference?’ and there’s no better way to begin exploring that question than through personal growth and learning.”
The First Saturday Workshops begin October 5th with Let Your Light Shine: Becoming a Powerful Public Speaker taught by theatre artist Genevieve Aichele and vocal instructor Martha Gleason as they join forces in a workshop designed to help participants awaken to their true voice power and ability to connect with audiences in an authentic way.
This workshop is paired with the first MainStage show of the 2019 - 2020 Season, The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess. Stewart adds that “...in The Niceties, both characters - strong female identifying academics, have to eloquently and passionately argue their stance on race, gender and American history. It felt serendipitous to be able to bring Martha and Genevieve back for this ever-popular workshop in partnership with this production.”
New this year, adults can attend yoga at the theatre Tuesday afternoons at 2.30 - 3.30pm and Thursday mornings at 9.00am - 10.00am beginning September 17 through June 30.
For theatre artists and community members alike, relax with a 60 minute Vinyasa Yoga class in the theatre, available twice a week. All levels are welcome! This class will offer a safe and supportive environment to center the body and mind, linking movement to breath within a creative flow, while building strength and flexibility.
Students can attend classes individually or receive a discount for groups of classes. Payment is made directly to the class instructor, Meghann Beauchamp at the time of class. $10 Drop-in or 5 classes for $45. $5 drop-in new student special. No registration required.
