FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN STORYTELLING BEFORE OR HAVE RELEVANT EXPERIENCE-- no beginner fundamentals taught in class.


Learn how to take your true-life material to the next level. You will
finish this class able to develop your own voice further in order to
move on to complete (or start) that one  person show, stand up act,
storytelling act, or memoir. Each student will leave class with a few
completed stories as told in "their voice," yet relateable to any
audience.   Students will be given topics to write about weekly,
challenging themselves to tap even deeper into their own lives to find
true, humorous, universal material.



Students should leave class with the skills needed to dig into their
lives for a story on virtually any topic. This is useful for
auditioning, public speaking, memoir writing, live performing, stand up
comedy, one-person shows and basic entertaining. A lot of the in class
work will focus on simultaneously becoming both a stronger solo
performer and writer. Topics covered in class include: Character,
emotion, finding the full circle, performance, polishing, the
unexpected, and flaws. Expect to let your guard down completely to
uncover the hilarity that lies within out true lives.



This class is equally a writing AND performance class.



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

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #234
