Each workshop is $25 and if you purchase both the cost is only $40! (Plus BPT Fees)


Here's the descriptions of the workshops and Joey's Bio.

Workshops are listed with dates and times. All workshops will be held at Unscrewed Theater:


Saturday, June 20, 10am-1pm

STARTING THINGS OFF RIGHT:JUST GET TO IT - Want an interesting character without spending half your scene building one? Want to develop a character within the first few moments? Want to have a clear idea about what the scene is right at the top? Then this is the class for you. Join Joey Shope as he instructs you on how to get the most out of your scene without spending precious minutes trying to figure it out the hard way. You will gain the ability to quickly make funny and interesting characters. If you start strong, you're going to end strong, and starting things off right will get the ball rolling in the best way possible. 


Saturday, June 20, 2pm-5pm

FORM DORM - Doing great scene work, but don't have a form to wrap around it? Montage after Montage bringing you down? Look no further. Forms are fun and exciting, and can add an interesting theatrical bent to your show. Forms also help your team have the same group goal, and can quickly develop group mind. There are millions of forms out there, why not try a couple? Learn the basic philosophies for the Slacker, Armando, La Ronde and so many more. Find one you love and let it inspire you and your troupe to try something different. Let these forms inspire you to create your own, or alter one you learn into something that you and your troupe would be interested in playing.


Admission is non-refundable. Workshops will be limited to 15 participants. 

Online sales end June 19 at Noon
