The voice is one of the most powerful tools an actor brings to a role. Yet few amateur actors have any training in how to develop, hone and use the voice to create compelling drama. Actors are often surprised to discover voice capabilities they never knew they had.
Shuswap Theatre is offering a corrective for this oft neglected part of the acting art. We are proud to bring Brad Gibson, an accomplished professional and teacher, back to Salmon Arm for a two day Voice Workshop. Brad is one of many Shuswap Theatre members who have gone on to successful professional careers.
The workshop will be held at Shuswap Theatre Saturday and Sunday, January 23 and 24 (9:30 am to 4:00 pm) and the cost is only $50. Participants from other theatre clubs are welcome. There is a maximum enrollment of 20, so register early. The workshop is co-sponsored by Shuswap Theatre and Okanagan Zone of Theatre BC.
To register complete the form below. For more information contact James Bowlby by email or at 250-833-5134.
