Stories to Stage, Words and Songs: A Study in Adaptation 

Join us to create original songs and scenes for solo, duet, and group musical theater performance, in a course led by Suzzy Roche, an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and performance artist (founding member of the Roches) and Meg Wolitzer, a New York Times bestselling novelist and frequent book critic on NPR's "All Things Considered." In this dynamic workshop, you will explore songwriting, fiction-writing, musical theater and performing yourself. You’ll generate new work each week through improvisation, adaptation and collaboration. This class is for both seasoned performers and writers, and those with little experience but a willingness to experiment. We will focus on process instead of perfection. A selection of the songs, stories and scenes you've created will be synthesized into an evening showcase, performed by the class at the end of the term.

Openings still available. Contact Meg Wolitzer AND Suzzy Roche via email: and .

Making Theater Without a Script 

Led by Artistic Director and Founder John Collins and ensemble members of Elevator Repair Service Theater, this course will offer students the opportunity to learn about how the 22-year-old NYC-based ensemble works, and to develop material with the ensemble culminating in a performance directed by John Collins. The course will look at the ensemble's work with choreography, sound design, space and text. Students will then generate material and create a performance using all of the above elements and the Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe as text.
