It is important for every theatre company to have a home base community - and that is what EPIC Plays is for us. In EPIC Plays, actors get to be silly, be themselves, have fun through arts skills and simultaneously explore and devise original content while building a strong community. In the fall, we focus on devising - or creating our own content - around the theme of Independence, love, loss and the inclusion experience. We will perform together in December to showcase our original work. In the spring, our class will focus on building ensemble, learning different skill sets, improvisation, magic and music and preparing for our summer showcase. Our lifestyle classes will be built in to our EPIC Plays schedule.

The best way to learn about music is to make music! In this class we will explore musical concepts such as harmony, rhythm, and even acting through song, by examining and performing works by composers like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stephen Sondheim, and Alan Menken. Improve your music reading skills while singing songs from your favorite Broadway shows and expanding your Broadway musical knowledge!

Personal Narrative and Spoken Word
Talia Eapen and Jessica Saul
As actors, comedians, writers, directors, we can be asked by industry, fans etc... “so, what’s your story?”
Long winded explanations and streams of consciousness can confuse or disinterest casting agents, reporters and interviewers. This class will help you express yourself while keeping your narrative brief and meaningful.
This 5 week class will focus on editing your personal narrative for the stage and for written statements and bios. Hosting, public speaking, active listening and help you build critical thinking when you are in front of a live audience.
In each class everyone will give a 1-5-minute presentation on the subject assigned. Comedy students will also have a chance to present at our spoken word variety show in February 2018.
