Public Works Dallas is hosting storytelling workshops at LIFT from 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm every Thursday through September. The workshops are open to all LIFT students, staff and volunteers as well as the community at large. Participants will learn storytelling techniques, improvisation, movement, and other skills needed for stage productions. The workshops are being led by Ace Anderson, a resident artist at Dallas Theater Center.
The workshop will conclude with the participants auditioning for roles in a community production of “A Winter’s Tale” by William Shakespeare. The performance will take place in 2018 at the Wiley Theater in the Dallas Theater Center. Last year’s workshop culminated in the production of The Tempest by William Shakespeare. Over 200 members of the community participated in the production, which included several professional actors and community groups.
LIFT is one of 5 community organizations that are participating in Public Works Dallas workshops.
