Preparing for a successful performance
You are booked for a gig and are rehearsed and ready. What could possibly go wrong? Everything! Venue problems, miscommunication with the organizers, audience issues—there are any number of ways your storytelling can be overshadowed by outside forces. Learn how to avoid the “crash and burn” experience. Come with your horror stories, and pick up Kathy’s valuable tips and strategies for a successful performance.
A performance workshop including microphone technique and stage tips
From entrance to exit you leave a lasting impression with your audience. In this workshop, you’ll receive valuable tips on handling nerves, stage presence, and adding some zip to your story delivery. A good chunk of time will also be spent on microphone technique. Participants will have the opportunity to practice with various types of microphones and gain experience with what works best for them. Come with a short story you know well.
Learn the basics for creating your own memorable tales
Participants will explore the various stages of story development: gathering ideas, different ways to create a story line/structure, character development, embellishment and dialogue. They will also take the first steps toward learning their new story—finding out what works and what doesn’t, and re-working their original concept as necessary. Both fiction and non-fiction will be addressed.
Stories reveal truths about ourselves and our world
