Please join us for our annual Middle School Student Workshop Day on Saturday, November 7th. We are moving this year's workshop entirely online through Zoom! Workshop day runs from 10 AM to 1 PM.

There will be social activities in between workshops to introduce participants to other "theater kids" from around the state and build those connections and communities.

All participants will get to try three interactive and exciting workshops and explore new ways to create theater where they are, with what they have around them.

Workshops will include:

Performance Techniques for Monologues and Songs
We will focus on preparing for auditions and contests (like the upcoming METG Performance Contests later this year!)

Set & Costume Design and Concept Presentation
Use the materials you have around you! Skills you develop and ideas generated here can also be applied to METG Design Contest Entries!
