ONLINE: Find Yourself Through Theatre

With Sarah Lucht

June 19 - 26, 2021

Join Sarah Lucht, professional actor, educator, and coach in this exciting new online program. Sarah is a co-creator of the popular in-person Act Natural program at the Haven and has 35 years’ experience in theatre, film and television.

This program spans over 2 half days and will give you opportunities to learn about and challenge yourself as you step into new and different roles and play!

Using short scripts, breathing, movement, discussion and exploration of vocal and physical techniques used by stage actors, we will learn how to connect interpersonally in meaningful ways online.

This workshop is designed for all levels, especially non-actors.
