| $25

Join us at The Z for an acting masterclass, led by Alex Bates, culminating in a cabaret performance for the public.

You will spend Friday evening working through exercises that help break down the walls that keep you, as an actor, from experiencing a true connection with your audience. Throughout the evening you will get individualized attention from the instructor, using those exercises and perpared pieces.

On Saturday afternoon, you will work through your prepared piece(s), applying the techniques you learned the evening before. That evening, you will perform your piece(s), cabaret-style, for your family, friends, and friends of the theater.

Alex Bates hails from Florence, Alabama, and attended Jacksonville State University where she started a Cabaret-style theatre for Alpha Psi Omega called Cocky Guerrilla Theatre. Alex has been seen at Old Creamery Theatre, Great Plains Theatre, Bluegate Musicals, Brightstar Touring Theatre, Birmingham Children’s Theatre and in several historical outdoor dramas. Some of her favorite credits include Kate in “Kiss Me Kate”, Rosa Parks in “The Birmingham Bus Boycott”, Sylvia in “All Shook Up”, Mrs. Gottlieb in “Dead Man’s Cell Phone”, and Motormouth Maybelle in “Hairspray”. www.alexandriabates.weebly.com

Cost for the workshop is $25 and includes the workshop on Friday, March 29 from 6-9 pm and Saturday, March 30 from 1-4, followed by the cabaret performance at 7 pm. You will need to bring at least one monologue, story, or song that you have already memorized prior to the workshop. (You may bring more than one, but are not guaranteed time to work on/perform more than one.)
