Are you an ACTOR looking to work on a scene or monologue? Are you a DIRECTOR looking for advice or help staging a scene? Are you a PLAYWRIGHT who needs extra workshop time?
The DIRECTINGDROP-IN is a two hour weekly block where you can bring your scenes and projects to work on, get coached, and collaborate.
It’s a great way to get a boost in your Fringe rehearsals, jump-start material, or try out new stuff! A $10 drop-in gives you access to collaborate and audit, and $30 gets you an hour of working exclusively on the material you bring in.
