Storytelling with Margot Leitman
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Learn how to use your untapped humanity and embarrassing moments in a way that can reach a wide audience. You will finish this workshop with the tools you need to effectively construct a story and be able to fill in the blank, “———– is the story of my life.”
Each student should leave class with a basic concept of how to make painful, strange or even mundane experiences from their life funny. The students learn to dig inside their own lives to find humorous, relatable material, which unifies an audience making them laugh at their own experiences through the student’s performance. Instructor, Moth Grandslam winner and best-selling author of “Long Story Short, the Only Storytelling Guide You’ll Ever Need” Leitman will work with each student honing their stories to work better on stage. Students will leave class with a strong direction of how to structure a story for the stage, office, first date or wherever they choose to put it to use. Additional focus will be on getting through the fear of being judged for our honesty. In the past, many students have left saying, “I can’t believe I told a room full of strangers about that and I can’t believe they all laughed!”
