What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

Everyone has a story to tell and Green Shirt’s storytelling program helps students find their unique voice. Inspired by our Meisner acting training program, we use writing exercises and improvisation to dig deep and weave exciting, surprising tales that need to be told. Each level is six weeks long and designed to be taken in order as each student’s story builds over the 18 weeks into the first draft of their full length one person show. Students may jump levels by instructor approval. 

Level 1: The Five Minute Story

Have you ever felt like your life isn’t interesting enough to get up on stage and talk about it? You’re wrong! In Level 1 we’ll start by discovering where your story worthy moments live. Then we’ll cover the basic structural elements of a good story and bridge the “but why would anyone want to hear me talk about myself” gap by learning to authentically connect with our audience. By the end of Level 1, you’ll have at least 5 minutes of material which we’ll share with an invited audience of family and friends.
