Participants will develop a 1-2 minute comedy routine that they will develop and perform. No preparation necessary. Dress to move comfortably.

During the workshops they will also hold an information session and call for actors, musicians and volunteers to participate in their performance of “An Enemy of the People” – a site-specific performance that will take place August 7 through August 12.
