Erin Kukla – Play Production— The week begins in the Briggs Opera House – a 240-seat theater built and used for acclaimed professional theater since 1988. Erin will lead the company through physical and vocal warmups and we brainstorm what the play will be. Thru the use of structured improvisation, we create characters and some of the dialogue. We also assess who is interested in what roles--acting, creating the set and choosing costumes, stage managing.
