You're Such a Character (Actor)! Improv + Play Workshop for Brite Winter

Hosted by our very own character extraordinaire, Sam Novak, practice playing to help bring Brite Winter/ Brite Winter 2019 to life!

This fun performance-based workshop teaches techniques in basic improv, audience interaction, putting together a festive thematic costume, and more. We’ll come up with fun ways to keep Brite’s audience on their toes. Participants who sign up for a volunteer character shift during the event get a custom-made costume to keep!

This year's Brite Winter theme is "Onward!" with many fun interpretations related to places and themes surrounding "the golden age of transportation" including, planes, trains, ships, and automobiles (and even pyramids!).

Check out the other Brite Public Artist Workshops, which start this Thursday 1/24! Get crafty with us.✨

All workshops are free and open to the public, held at IngenuityLabs @ the Hamilton Collaborative —5401 Hamilton Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio, 44114.

All skill levels welcome, wear warm clothing! Questions? Contact Ingenuity's Artistic Director Emily A. @ 440-479-2077!
