Oregon Contemporary Theatre offers a variety of courses for adults of all experience and training levels. Our classes are taught by professional instructors and cover a number of topics, including Acting Technique, Scene Study, Playwriting, and more. Classes are generally 4-8 weeks and are taught in the Autumn, Winter, and Spring.
You've written a number of ten-minute plays and now you want to try your hand at a full-length script. This class will start you down the path to planning and completing a full-length play. Activities include reading and analyzing a full-length play, discussion of story ideas and writing planning, and workshopping your play's opening scenes, up to and including the inciting incident, as well as at least one other "crystalline moment" from later in your play.
Script Analysis with Erica Towe Mondays, April 3 - May 22; 6:30pm-8:30pm
Enhanced understanding of a script--how it is broken down, how to pick out themes, discovering subtext, and more--improves how you interact with a story, whether you are an artist or an audience member. Learn how to get more from reading a script, so that you can tell your story better. This is a great course for beginning and intermediate actors, storytellers, playwrights, designers, directors, and audience members!
