We all find ourselves using the same couple of voices and characters in every show! 
Well, character is more than a weird voice or a wacky catchphrase.  By using speech, movement & attitude, this workshop will build up your creative character-building muscles and help you expand on your instincts.  Change the way you view character work and become uniquely wonderful the moment you hit the stage. Our hope is to help you find at least one new character in our time.
