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!
Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone.

This online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
