Sarah Lucht and Jane Bement Geesman have combined their many years of experience as theatre artists and teachers to create a weekend workshop that is designed specifically for Portland Shakespeare Project’s supporters, audience members, and anyone who is interested in creative self-expression, working with classical language, and understanding the fundamentals of acting.

Absolutely no prior acting experience is needed to derive value and fun from this process.  All you need to bring is a love of theatre and curiosity about the craft of acting!

Jane and Sarah have been leading workshops for over 15 years in Oregon, Washington, California and Canada.  Their process is a unique blend of actor-training techniques and personal development concepts that encourage engagement with creative instincts, language and storytelling.

Participants in “Creativity and the Classics” will be offered a variety of exercises that promote freer expression, renewed energy and a sense of play, with opportunities to

  • Deepen your understanding of the acting process and enrich your appreciation of the theatre
  • Experience the pleasure of working with heightened language/text
  • Explore creativity and enhance focus and presence in your life

Workshop Tuition is $235 before January 21 and $265 thereafter.
The workshop is limited to twelve participants, so sign up today!

The workshop will take place at Artists Repertory Theatre – Bigelow Rehearsal Room, 1515 SW Morrison Street, Portland, OR 97205. [MAP]
