Festival 2019 Workshops
Designing for the Cinematic Stage
Presented by Dr. Paul Newman
This workshop will be part presentation and part small group activity to help the amateur set designer navigate the demands of contemporary playwrights who just won’t locate their dramatic action in a British drawing room.
Directing: Create and Sustain the World of the Play
Presented by Wendy Moore
What does it mean to create and sustain the world of the play? What do you have to show in the set, props, costumes and characterization to make the world one that these people would inhabit?
Marketing on a Shoestring Budget
Presented by Lisa Langer
Learn how to utilize community support to help your theater get the word out without breaking the piggy bank. Workshop includes simple techniques including social media messaging and leveraging on-air channels with creative spin.
Acting: Energize Your Scene Work
Presented by Sue Lavin
Working with short scenes we will maximize their power using voice, movement and goals. Most particularly we will work on listening to stage partners.
185 Improv Workshops Walk Into a Bar: Some Improvisation Basics for the Curious
Presented by Mike Monroney
Take a quick dive into the hot springs of your imagination (Glenwood Springs references intended) with this energetic exploration of improvisation in the style of Second City and Whose Line is it Anyway? These are dynamic skills that will apply to all of your stage work.
WORKSHOP / TOUR
Tour of CMC Prototype Lab
Presented by Brian Tinker (CMC’s Isaacson School for Communication Arts and Media)
Join us for a workshop experience at Colorado Mountain College’s Isaacson School Prototype Lab. Explore how non-traditional tools and methods can enhance your productions. 3D printers, CNC machines, vinyl plotters, and more can provide unique ways to create props, set pieces and custom fittings for lighting and audio. You may not have all of these tools in your shop, but the rapidly emerging makerspace movement can provide partnership opportunities to provide access. Workshop participants will also serigraph a Colorado Theatre Festival 2019 T-shirt as a memento of the workshop.
