Join Kevin McDonald of the Kids in the Hall for a two day workshop to improve your acting and writing skills. Students will learn how to write comedy through performance, and use improv as a writing tool.
Come join a new workshop with Kevin McDonald of the Kids n the Hall (that's who he says he is anyway). In this workshop, you will each bring a script of a comedy sketch that you have written. Please bring enough copies for each character in the sketch, one for someone to read stage directions and one for Kevin. For example - if the sketch has 4 characters, bring 6 copies.
On Saturday, we will read all the sketches and Kevin will give notes - as only a man who had a sketch comedy show in the 90's can. (Hopefully his notes won't be "Can there be more references to Soundgarden?"). You will then have an hour or two to re-write your sketches - with Kevin's help (If he isn't too busy, listening to old Soundgarden albums). So bring your laptops to the workshop. Then we will re-read the newly written sketches and Kevin will give more notes. He will then choose 5 or 6 of the sketches and cast the parts with everyone in the class.
On Sunday, Kevin will direct and rehearse the scenes with everyone all day with you. And even if your sketches aren't picked - everyone has to be in at least one sketch. And Kevin will rehearse each sketch, one at a time so even if you're not in the sketch being rehearsed, you will have input on the sketch (like the Kids in the Hall used to do).
And that night, the new sketches will be performed as part of a show that Kevin is putting on. So come to Kevin's workshop/show - where he will also tell many Kids in the Hall anecdotes. Probably too many. You will probably end up asking him to stop telling Kids in the Hall anecdotes.
