SSP Hosts Theater Foundations: Playwrights & Actors Workshops

Silver Stage Players is happy to announce, Theater Foundations, a series of workshops aimed at honing the creative skill and talents of Elko's performance art community. Participants will practice and explore various theatrical disciplines that are then combined into a final showcase that demonstrates their newly acquired skills. The first theater Foundations workshop will center on playwriting and acting and is supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency.

The playwriting class is limited, but the acting portion is open to all, age 16 and up. Theater Foundations: Playwrights & Actors will take place November 18 and 19. The playwright class will be from 2 - 9 PM on the 18th and continue from 9 AM until 4 PM the 19th at the Elko Area Chamber of Commerce. Placement is limited so please contact SSP for further details. The acting workshop will start November 19th at 10 AM at the Northeastern Nevada Museum. At 1 PM on the 19th, actors will provide dramatic readings of the scenes written during the playwright class!

SSP resident dramaturge, Dr. Josh Webster, will lead the class on playwriting basics. Class topics will include how to structure a play's narrative arc, dynamics of a scene, and dialogue. Dr. Webster teaches English at Great Basin College and is also the proud recipient of the Nevada Arts Council's Artists Fellowship Grant. His theatrical work has been performed locally during the annual Poe & Pints event, and his full length play, Incredible Stories , was debuted in 2019.

Community actors Hilary Griffin and Derek Burwell will lead acting classes on discovery and interpretation. Combining powerful, creative choices with a finer understanding of line work and expression, provide useful tools for any actor who is looking at refining their craft. Hilary is a graduate of UNR's theater program, the Second City Training Center Conservatory, and Chicago Conservatory with an emphasis on sketch comedy and improv.
