Mother-Daughter Duo Offer Pair of Acting Workshops
In a rare opportunity to learn the art and craft of theatre from a mother and daughter duo, Cie and Lea Peterson of Hartford, CT will be offering two acting workshops for students wanting to explore or improve their skills. Clouds and a Waffle Productions LLC presents two affordable workshop opportunities: Acting Basics with Cie Peterson and Musical Theatre Performance with Lea Peterson and Cie Peterson. Both will be held on Saturday, January 27th in the TheaterWorks' Hoffman Rehearsal Studio on the third floor of City Arts on Pearl, 233 Pearl Street in downtown Hartford.
ACTING BASICS with Cie Peterson, 10:00am - 12:45pm
Acting Basics is designed to help the beginning actor develop competency while discovering what acting is truly about. (Hint: it is NOT about the words.) If you have any interest at all in acting, or just curiosity about the craft, this is the workshop you need to get started. Registration is $69.
MUSICAL THEATER PERFORMANCE with Lea and Cie Peterson 1:00pm - 5:00pm $99*
Meeting the demands of musical theater requires the development of both acting and singing skills. This workshop, a must for any musical theater performer, will focus on not only the technical aspects of breath and voice control, but also on the artistic aspects of acting through music and song. A short list of songs for the day will be provided by Jan. 20. Registration is $99.
Budding thespians who are interested in both workshops, can register for the discounted price of $150.00. To register or for additional information, visit www.ciepeterson.com
