Presented by Kevin Rich

If you're interested in being a theatre artist for life, it's always a good idea to put yourself in the driver's seat of your career, rather than waiting for the phone to ring! This workshop is centered on providing ideas and motivation for students who are interested in creating original work as part of pursuing theatre as a career. CU Boulder theatre professor Kevin Rich will introduce you to many possible avenues for creating original work, including playwriting, improvisation, devised and interview-based work, one-person shows and theatre for young audiences. The workshop will include some fun improvisation exercises and brainstorming sessions to help generate ideas for future projects, and you'll leave with a list of Ten Things To Do Before You Graduate to help you launch yourself into the career of your dreams!
