ACT Hired by Matthews Playhouse to Teach and Direct 'Life Stories' Performance Workshop

June Bayless, Artistic Director of Matthews Playhouse has hired ACT to teach/direct a performance workshop for seniors starting the first Wednesday in February 2011.  Matthews Playhouse received a $2,000 matching grant from the Arts & Science Council for a senior theatre performance workshop where the students aged 55+ will compose monologues of their life's stories.  Students will work on acting, storytelling and writing techniques for twelve sessions.  A public performance of this multi-media 'Life Stories' production is scheduled for April followed by performances at three senior communities in Matthews and Mint Hill.   The fee for the workshop is only $125 and the class size is limited so early enrollment is advised.  The workshop will take place on Wednesdays from 10:30 - 12 at the Matthews Playhouse - 100 McDowell Street in Matthews.  For more information please call Wrenn at ACT.
