Gallery 7 in Abbotsford presents two online theatre courses

Sessions offered in November on Shakespeare and stage management

Gallery 7 Theatre in Abbotsford presents two online theatre-related courses this month.

The courses are part of the theatre’s G7 Lite: Service Pack 29.5 season.

“With live production temporarily suspended, these online workshops offer artists, technicians and those interested in theatre to explore more fully the ins and outs of theatre performance and production,” says Ken Hildebrandt, executive/artistic director.

“These courses are led by experts in their field, and represent a perfect opportunity to finetune skills and explore these topics in a fun way.”

Performing Shakespeare with SAMC theatre chair Kate Muchmore Woo runs every Thursday in November from 7 to 9 p.m.

The course explores the fun of performing Shakespeare, while expanding upon participants’ vocal and acting skills.

They will learn how to interpret Shakespeare’s language in general, and explore how the text – whether it be in verse or prose – informs character choices.

The course will also explore vocal techniques such as diction, cadence, and meter, and will include practical opportunities for participants to try their hand at performing a short scene or monologue from one of Shakespeare’s many plays.

The Stage Manager: Master Facilitator with professional production manager Charlene Crawford takes place on two Tuesdays – Nov. 17 and 24 – from 7 to 9 p.m.

The course takes a look at what a stage manager does as well as the many tools a stage manager has at their disposal.

From there, participants will work through several exercises that go from “page to stage” from a stage manager’s perspective.

This workshop will cover both basic and more intermediate-level topics.

Visit gallery7theatre.com for more information, including course costs, or to register. Each course is limited to 10 people.
