In this five session workshop, actors, writers and directors will combine their talents and hone their skills to create an original theater piece that will culminate in a workshop production at the historic Lambertville Hall.

Participants will delve into the creative process exploring specific aspects of creating a play from writing and directing, to acting, working together to bring the group’s collective vision to the life.

Local artists and actors are encouraged to register and develop their skills in this collaborative theater class.
