CURRENT CLASSES:

Finding Your Space: with Shane Peterman and Vonda K. Bowling

“Finding Your Space” a class for performer re-discovery with Shane Peterman and Vonda K. Bowling.

WaterTower Theatre is pleased to announce a new masterclass series for performing artists of all levels to help find their way back onto the stage. The intent will be to provide a safe, supportive environment where each artist can work on their book or material to help “get back on your feet artistically”. The class will be led by Producing Artistic Director Shane Peterman and Music Director Vonda K. Bowling. “After producing theatrical digital capture(s) for film during the last 6 months, it became clear to me that what we need as a community and as artists, is to find our way back to the stage by rediscovering our space again”, says Mr. Peterman, “Being on stage is the first step to coming back home to theatre and to ourselves as artists”. Ghostlights have been burning in theatres all over the world for the last year, and now is the time for actors to reacquaint themselves with the stage in preparation for the return of employment in live theater. Each participant will be given the opportunity to work through song selections and monologues from their repertoire on the Terry Martin Main Stage per WTT safety guidelines.
