adults of all ages and aspirations.

character development, stage combat, voice, dance, and playwriting. Three of the sessions will focus on
technical theatre, including stage management, sound and lighting.
Instructors include STC Artistic Director Caleb Marshall and Playwright in Residence Matt Heiti, as well as
