Drama Workshop
Taught by Mary L. Booker
May 14 - August 25, 2013
Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8PM

Mary L. Booker has been teaching acting at the Bayview Opera House since 2003. Her popular workshops are based on the Stanislavski method, which focuses on the inner emotion and spirit of the actor that is drawn out in the performance to give it power and authenticity. This intensive workshop will take place Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6-8PM and culminate in the play "A Little Piece of God," to be performed later this year at the BVOH. The first performance of excerpts is a fundrasing event on August 25, 2013. The workshop is open to all adults with or without prior acting experience, and mature younger teens are admitted occasionally.

June 10 - August 1, 2013
Final Showcase August 1, 2012, 5:30 -7PM - Open to the public
