College Now @ Queensborough Community College
Summer Theater Production Workshop
Open Call: Looking for aspiring and would-be actors, costumers, makeup artists, set designers, and other theatre hopefuls to hone their craft and mount a fully-staged production (for college credit) at Queensborough Community College's Summer Theatre Production Workshop. TH124 is a 3-credit college course on script analysis, acting and stagecraft and afternoon workshops on playwriting (new this summer) and stage management. Students will read short plays in the Neo-Futurist Theatre style, study their structure and apply it in their assignments -short plays and monologues from their life experiences and points of view, which they will perform in an evening of theatre on July 30. This summer a workshop with a professional playwright will enrich students' learning. They will also attend a Broadway show, The Curious Story of the Dog in the Night.
