You secretly harbor a desire to stride the boards yourself, or climb inside the head-heart process behind it all. Now is your chance: TheatreFIRST’s intimate, 8-students-only classes invite local professionals to lead participants in performance gift making, working against stereotype, the use of dramaturgy, and more. Classes are filling up, so jump on the waiting list or land a last, lucky spot. Whether your future role is onstage or in the house as a member of the Bay Area’s diverse, curious and challenging audiences, participating in the backstage matrix of live theater is a must-do.
