monologue to practice deconstructing to fully understand the meaning and add
more nuances to your performance.
Murder Mystery With Liz
What happens when everyone suddenly becomes a murder suspect in the middle of the activity? Well, you have to figure out who the real murderer is, of course! As the night draws on, you're tasked with interrogating suspects, gathering clues, and working on solving the mystery before the night is over and the culprit gets away! Is it the gardener? Is it the cook? Or the chauffeur? In addition, everyone playing will be given a character they have to embody and the game starts once the clock hits the hour of the call!
Telling Each Other's Story with Caitlyn
After joining in one big zoom, we will go into break out rooms in
teams of two and one will tell the story of a time they faced
adversity while the other simply listens. Then we’ll switch and listen
while the other tells their story. After this, we will all return to the
main zoom room and tell the other person's story as if it was your
own. This exercise is meant to make the actor comfortable enough to put
their story into the voice of another person and for the actor to tell
a story so they can better embody a character.
