Auburn Haunted Theater is bringing Haunter University to Illinois. It is taught by two of the industry's leaders in the realm of interactive/improvisational acting, "Crazy Bob" Turner and his wife Beth Turner. It is intended for actors who want to cultivate their skills and abilities further to create more memorable characters that are more versatile. HAUNTERTAINERS-like the word suggests-are entertainers first and foremost, and are ready for any scenario that interaction with customers might bring. The class focuses on advanced approaches to topics including spontaneous dialogue, multiple character values, clarity of speech, styles of makeup, variety of scare techniques, and more. The class also gives it's participants many opportunities to get involved through group skits, readings, and acting and costume evaluations. The honest but helpful critiques by the class instructors is hopefully what will help the attendees be able to grow with insight and real-world knowledge to help them become true HAUNTERTAINERS! There is an all-day class on Saturday August 8, 2009. We will be accepting 30 applicants to this class so register soon. The registration form is attached to this post. Email Robbin Terry @ firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. There will be a DVD available for purchase at the event to allow you to take home additional information. The DVD is just over 3 hours long and covers many of the topics covered in the HAUNTERTAINER UNIVERSITY class, and is co-produced by Shutter Productions who brought you PLAYING WITH FEAR and HAUNTING MAKEUP VOLUME ONE.
I took this at MHC last year. I highly recommend it...
