This is a writing and performance class focused on creating original characters. 

This class will use the concept of the "Game" so a background in other UCB classes is important.  Students will be taught different strategies for coming up with characters. By the end of class students will have developed multiple characters culminating in a class show where they will perform one 3-5 minute character monologue.

Please note: Students will be expected to write and prepare characters outside of class each week. You will perform those characters! You will write AND perform!

Maximum class size is 12

Please note all tuition payments include a $35 non-refundable registration processing fee.

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #234
