F401 Winter 2019 OLLI Players Workshop
Mondays, 9:40–11:05, Jan. 28–Feb. 18
Instructor: Kathie West
Associate Instructor: Wendy Campbell
This is a continuing acting and producing workshop for serious theater-minded participants, conducted by the OLLI Players, an amateur theater group affiliated with Mason. In our repertoire, we incorporate lyrics, short scenes, monologues, and original plays. We put together variety and vaudeville shows and perform them at various local venues such as senior centers, libraries, and Shepherd’s Centers. We are also beginning to work with Fairfax County cable channel 16. You must be willing to travel during the day, mostly on Fridays. Carpooling is also available. If you have a scene or a play you would like to see put on, bring it along, and we will try it. Come, join, and be willing to tout OLLI Players and your talents!
