Workshop description:

Are your characters never brought back for callbacks? Are you first to be tagged out? It could be that you haven’t given yourself enough in the first scene. Or maybe you’ve been too supportive of your partner. In either case, you need to focus on you.

This workshop will work on finding the essence of your character, then maintaining and growing it. The best thing you can do for your partner is to give yourself something. Be specific, be detailed, make simple choices for yourself from the moment you step into a scene. Let those choices sink in, build on them, make your character a person that you’ll want to explore in every beat. Let’s find that together!

Instructor bio:

Megan is the Artistic Director of the Magnet Theater, a writer, performer and native New Yorker. She has performed with Second City aboard the NCL Gem and is a member of Magnet's resident team "Junior Varsity." She can be seen in such notable shows as "The Armando Diaz Experience" and "The Cast" -- a show that the New York Times' Elise Czajkowski calls, "one of the most exciting improv shows in New York City." Megan also produces and hosts the monthly female improv show "We Might Just Kiss."

Megan graduated with a degree in Dramatic Writing from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and has written for MTV2 and Comedy Central online. In her spare time, she teaches improvisation at universities and festivals across the U.S., Canada and Europe and performs with the Magnet Touring Company. She also does a lot of yoga.
