Theatre workshops in a theatre – May, 2006

Workshop #1

Tuesday, May 2nd ( 7:30 – 9:30 PM ):

“MAKING IT REAL: Acting Advice from the Experts.”

There are some things you can’t pick up on the streets – you have to learn them in school. This workshop provides a handy toolkit of the many techniques that trained actors use to bring characters to life. If you’ve ever wondered what takes the “am” out of “dram”, this will be an invaluable chance to learn and practice the skills you’ve admired in stage and screen actors. We will explore a number of short texts, developing ways to go beyond “performing” a role and start inhabiting it.

The workshop leader will be HKP Chairman, Stephen Bolton, who has spent many years being involved (as an actor, a director, a producer and a writer) in numerous shows, and has spent nearly every dollar he earns on workshops, books and DVDs on the craft of acting.Watch movie online Get Out (2017)

“FUN WITH FILM SCENES”

We’ve all sat round the pub re-enacting our favourite moments from movies. This totally interactive, entertaining workshop is a fabulous chance to go a step further and explore what makes those sensational scenes so unforgettable.

We’ll be working with a carefully chosen collection of movie moments – covering a variety of genres, and ranging from those scenes you all know to some you won’t believe you’ve missed – and discovering how mere words on a page become pure magic.

This workshop can be enjoyed in its own right, or as an opportunity to show off the skills you honed at the previous workshop.Watch Cyberbully (2015) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

“Saturday night at the movies” will take on a whole new meaning! Added bonus: HK Players being who we are, there is every possibility that we may all come full circle and, once the workshop is done, further explore these same film scenes in a hospitable venue nearby.

The workshop leader will be HKP Secretary, Adam West, who has acted in four Players productions (one of which he directed) and who is soon to appear in a Hong Kong art-house film. He may well be among those who go to the pub when the workshop is over.
