Lead By: Devil’s Daughter – Gretchen Eng, Max Ganet, Lisa Burton
Date and Time: Saturday, September 21, 10AM-1PM
Location: Steel City Improv Theater
Allow Devil’s Daughter to walk you through the beats of a long form Harold, giving you the tools to master the intricacies of group work and launch you into excellent scene work that will lay the foundation for a well-rounded and hilarious half hour show. Devil’s Daughter’s specific take on the Harold will also give you the opportunity to explore solo character work. With these three components: Group Work, Solo Characters, and Two-Person scenes, you will leave feeling empowered to take charge in any aspect of a long form show with imagination and confidence.
