Teatro Paraguas hosts a workshop for playwrights facilitated by professional playwright Mark Dunn. Lunch is included in the workshop fee of $15. 

The workshop explores the mechanics of telling stories through the medium of theater. It focuses on both the basic tools of play construction, and offers advanced tips and tricks of the trade to help the playwright write theater pieces that connect with and engage audiences.

Mark Dunn is a thirty-year veteran playwright. He has written more than thirty full-length plays, half of which have been published and are professionally licensed by Samuel French and other publishers. Dunn’s four most popular plays, Belles, Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain, A Delightful Quarantine, and Cabin Fever: A Texas Tragicomedy, have together received more than 300 productions throughout the world. His latest southern female comedy, The Glitter Girls, will be published by Samuel French later this year and is already receiving productions around the U.S. and Canada. Mark is also author of several books, including the award-winning novel, Ella Minnow Pea.

Action Acting

Action Acting is a school that provides two 1-day, 4.5 hour very intensive and detailed Action Acting programs designed specifically for actors. This is not a stunt class. It’s a program designed for actors to provide actors with the technical skills and know-how to show up to an audition, to participate in a meeting with a director or a producer, or to step on set and stand out by delivering  and impressing with knowledge, competence, confidence, and professionalism.

The programs are taught by the best in the business, such as Bruce Willis’s personal stunt double. Please see our web site: www.MyActionActing.com.

Date:
October 27 & 28

Location:
Studio Nia Santa Fe
851 W San Mateo #6 • Santa Fe • NM

Please check out our Facebook event page. I invite anyone who’d like to learn from someone who’s been in the business—at the top—for a long time.
