Act Creation & Realization Lab

About this Creation Lab

Ready to polish your new work? This class lets you workshop your “act in progress” with an outside eye, culminating with a final presentation with video and photography. Coaching will not include skill acquisition, but will include tools to improve the flow of the act, character development, puller training on the general pulley system and the butterfly lift, costume and make up support, and work on the general ‘look and feel’ of your act. Led by Elsie Smith and Serenity Smith Forchion, you’ll benefit from their over 60 years combined experience in the performing arts.


$400 includes video and photo shoot
