Writing a solo show can be a struggle! In this 4-week course, we will meet virtually one-on-one and construct a show that you will be proud to perform.
Do you have an act that needs tweaking? Are you building a show from scratch and don't know where to start? THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU!

Here is a suggested timeline of how our time together could look:
Week 1: We will kick off our time together identifying goals and milestones you hope to achieve. We will create an outline of your established goals and each week you will have suggested assignments that you can focus on and practice.
We will discuss any new ideas that you have, explore your speciality skills, and answer any questions. We will share a living document where you'll receive notes and areas of opportunity. During week one, we will produce a rough outline for your complete show and in following weeks we will work together to refine each portion of your show.
Week 2: We will review your goals set from week one and discuss your progress. We will modify the outline accordingly, if necessary, to keep you aimed toward your targeted milestones. We will discuss music options that can enhance your show and will be guided toward song choices. We will discuss the use of props and incorporate them into your performance. You will receive some assignment suggestions to rehearse your show moments throughout the week between our sessions.
Week 3: We will review any previously recorded performance footage and you'll receive constructive feedback to improve. We will rehearse each segment of your show in real time and you will receive feedback that you can apply to your performance. By this time you will be rehearsing your show with music, props, etc. Any material that may not be considered family-friendly or politically correct will be addressed and adjustments will be suggested accordingly.
Week 4: We will put everything together and rehearse your complete show from start to finish. Finishing touches will be suggested to make your show top-notch. We will discuss ways that your show can be shortened or extended to meet and exceed client expectations and show needs.
