Workshops w/Kevin McDonald @ TNM
Aug 21, 2013
Join Kevin McDonald (The Kids in the Hall) as Hell Yes Fest presents “Improv into Sketch w/ Kevin McDonald,” a two-day, 14-hour workshop to improve your acting and writing skills. In a group of actors, you will learn how to write comedy through performance and using improv as a writing tool. And good news, TNMers – you can do this at either TNM Austin or TNM New Orleans!
The workshop will warm up with improv games to help sharpen storytelling skills, and evolve until students are doing their own improvised scenes in small groups. Kevin will go from group to group, helping and guiding with the “writing” of each scene. Each group will then have the opportunity to present their sketch.
After getting notes, revising and presenting the scenes again, the workshop will end with the groups going away and actually finalizing their scenes. The now fully-written scenes will be performed one last time for everyone.
This workshop will improve your acting and writing skills, and will teach you how both skills work in unison to create great scenes and hilarious comedy. And if you ask him, there’s a good chance Kevin will answer any questions about The Kids in the Hall. You might have to ask him to shut up.
The entire weekend workshop is $300. Reserve your spot now for $150. The spots will fill up fast!
