Learn to act naturally with Gwynne Hunt

Gwynne Hunt of Main Artery and Portal Players Dramatic Society have teamed up to offer Act Natural 2, a workshop for actors of all ages

Gwynne Hunt of Main Artery and Portal Players Dramatic Society have teamed up to offer Act Natural 2, an acting workshop, this Sunday, March 10 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.

This session is for actors of all ages, all experience levels, male and female.

Learn to act from the heart, not from the script. In this three-hour workshop participants will work on character development and performance art pieces.

Bring your own piece (monologue, poem, etc), improvise, or use one of the monologues provided. Warm-up exercises in improv and movement will kick off the day.

Instructor Hunt has a long history doing fringe shows, performance art, social justice theatre and alternative theatre.

Since she arrived in Port Alberni last spring she has done a couple of radio plays, Breadlines (a one act) and The Vagina Monologues. She owns and operates Main Artery on Argyle.

The Act Natural 2 workshop costs $10 for members of Portal Players, or $20 for non-members.

Please register in advance (with payment) at the theatre, or by calling the theatre at 250-723-1195; or by e-mailing capitoltheatre@shaw.ca.
