A common concern among local theater artists is that they are often so busy performing they have little time to revisit performance techniques. To answer this call, acclaimed and award-winning Stage Director and Music Director Meg Dussault and Shannon Stiles have designed Master Class in Performance, a 6-session training-centered course that offers participants the opportunity to receive

in-depth coaching while engaging in performative work. Unlike traditional audition workshops that focus on “best audition approaches” this course resists blanket formulas and instead reaches deeper into each performer’s technique and interpretive work, coaching specifically to each individual artist. To that end, this exploratory course aims to refresh the art within each artist.

The structure of the course invites participants to present performance material each week, song, monologue, or scene work. Participants will then receive individualized coaching specific to the work presented, their development stage, and performance goals. Through feedback provided by both the facilitators and observers, distinct artistic insight will be revealed through this unique course offering. Master Class in Performance invites participants to present their work to family and friends at the conclusion of the course. Enrollment is limited.
