Space 55 is very pleased to announce the return of The Playground for 2020! The Playground is a month-long, online, multi-discipline performing arts intensive which culminates in a weekend of performances via Zoom.
Nine top-notch teaching artists (including several AriZoni award winners!) have been enlisted to offer 10 very affordable, hands-on, material-developing workshops that explore the intersection of performance and writing; playwriting, storytelling, improvisation, songwriting, sketch comedy, and lots more.
Participants at all experience levels are encouraged to deep dive into the whole mind-boggling festival (more than 30 hours of workshops), but are welcome to dip their toe in one workshop at a time.
Workshops run Monday and Tuesday* evenings from 6:30-8:45, and Saturday mornings from 10am to 12pm Oct. 19 to Nov. 17.
*Tuesday, November 3rd class is moved to November 4 (Go vote!).
Performances November 20th and 21st.
