Storytelling Boot Camp with Carly Ann Filbin
Saturday, June 4th & Sunday, June 5th (2 Classes)
10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Take your personal experiences and turn them into an entertaining, engaging, and funny performance! In this workshop, we’ll explore speed drills, memory mining, and the basic elements of storytelling and solo performance. Whether you want to produce your own solo show, add more narrative elements to your stand-up, or simply get better at telling a good story or public speaking – this workshop will teach you how to turn ANYTHING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU into brilliant works of art.
Because notes are personalized, all levels are welcome.
No previous writing experience required.
