Everyone has a story to tell. Diversionary Theatre invites LGBTQ Seniors 55 and up to join its first-ever performance ensemble The Silver Squad. The focus of the ensemble is to investigate the stories you have to tell, while learning valuable theatre, storytelling and performance techniques to bring what you have to say to life on the stage.
Drop In Class:
Gain confidence, make new friends, and learn about the art of theatre as we create a supportive environment to explore your creative voice, and connect with others in The Silver Squad. Our Drop in classes are a good way to get a sample of what it is like to come study with us before committing to a longer class. We focus on two performance skills each session, that may include: Acting, Improv, Movement, Writing, Storytelling, Music, Voice and Speech, Circus, and much more! No commitment, and they are Free!
Upcoming Drop-In Dates:
May 26th – Improvisation (Improv)
Acting: We will explore the tools of the actor: Voice, Body, and imagination. Come in with a willingness to play and connect with others. This will take you through the nuts and bolts of standing on a stage and starting your artistic journey as an actor. Good for beginners, and experts alike. Think of this like playing scales for a musician.
Improv: What happens onstage when there is no script? Improv is a great way to flex the muscles of the mind, and create all new material every time! We will play games to unlock our creative potential, and then jump into some short scenes that you will create on the spot.
