GO U Workshops
Kevin McDonald returns to Go Comedy!
Writing & Acting With Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall)
October 5 & 6 from 10:30AM-5:00PM | $180 for One Day; $250 for Both
SATURDAY – Writing Workshop
This is a chance to work on one of your sketches with one of the sketch greats, Kevin McDonald. First, he will provide a mini w0rkshop on sketch writing. Then, students will share one sketch they’ve written, and Kevin and the other students will workshop the sketch and provide feedback. 4-5 of the sketches will be chosen for Sunday’s acting workshop and sketch show!
Please bring: A sketch script, printed with enough copies as there are parts (plus one for you, one for stage directions, and one for Kevin). Additionally, please bring a laptop for rewrites. Reminder that these should be sketches for stage only, not for film.
SUNDAY – Acting Workshop
In this workshop, Kevin will discuss the performance aspect of sketch comedy. Each of the sketches chosen from Saturday’s class will be staged, with Kevin directing. Everyone who isn’t in the scene that is being rehearsed will be watching, also giving notes. Everyone helps re-write, rehearse and work on all the sketches. We are creating and producing a sketch show, together. Everyone will be in 1 to 3 sketches. At the end of the day, we do a sort of a dress rehearsal.
