Port Fairy Theatre Group will host an open-age acting and directing workshops with Bethany Simons this weekend.
The freelance producer, writer, assistant director and performer who directs drama and playwriting workshops throughout Australia, will visit Port Fairy on Saturday and Sunday.
Simons said no experience was necessary for the fun sessions, which were for anyone who had ever imagined performing on stage.
Sessions will include character work, an introduction to directing, acting and directing exercises and text and script work. “There will be lots of introductory stuff and we’ll work up to scene work as well,” she said.
Theatre group secretary Mary Ewen said it was a great opportunity and places were available.“She’s very encouraging and has lots of experience,” Ms Ewen said.
Simons’ plays The Weather and Your Health and Reception: The Musical have toured throughout Australia. To book call Mary on 0408 407 950 before 5pm Friday.
