STAGE: Stratford and Shaw Festivals
This course will explore both the inner workings and the physical side of comedy, and all this will be done in a warm and open environment where everything goes and comedy techniques are learned through a ton of laughter and fun.
Participants will work in pairs reading and rehearsing famous comic scenes from film and theatre. Different comedy styles will be discussed, from the madcap to British wry humour, and there will be a look at a handful of the comic geniuses on film to see exactly how it’s done.
In Sheila’s own words – “Everyone’s idea of comedy is different. That’s what makes this class so exciting. You think you’re not funny? You will be after this experience!”
