OTTAWA ACTING CLASSES

This popular creative writing course is back, but this time with a twist! As always, this 6 week course is an entertaining and creative way of turning a story idea into a short play and getting it in front of an audience; this winter, however, the session is a little different. At a meeting prior to the start date of the course, a genre and a theme will be randomly drawn for each participant, all different, which the short play must include. As always, the works will be read and workshopped each week by all participants and a staged reading of all the works will take place online for an invited audience. No more thinking "What am I going to write about?"

What experience do I need?
None - all that's required is an enthusiasm for plays, creative writing and a sense of adventure!
