F401 Winter 2020 OLLI Players Workshop
Mondays, 9:40–11:05, Jan. 27–Feb. 17
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 George Mason University. In our repertoire we incorporate lyrics, short scenes, monologues, and original plays, while putting together variety shows, vaudeville shows, and radio shows. We perform at various local venues such as senior centers, libraries, and Shepherd Centers. As a member, you must be willing to travel during the day, mostly on Fridays. Carpooling is an option. Come, join, and be willing to tout OLLI Players and your talents!
