How to Train Your Dragon Workshops

Free Workshop On Self-Producing


Ever thought "I've got a great idea, let's put on a show?" Dragon Productions Theatre Company is hosting a "How To Train Your Dragon" workshop to artists who are interested in self-producing. This is a free event hosted by Dragon's Co-Artistic Directors Bora "Max" Koknar and Alika Spencer-Koknar. 


The workshop is open to anyone who wants to know more about what it takes to self-produce an artistic event, and artists who attend a workshop are given extra consideration when applying for the 2020 2nd Stages Series. 

 

Please pick one of the following dates below. They are the same workshop so you only need to attend one date. 

 

This free workshop is being presented at the Dragon Theatre (2120 Broadway Street in downtown Redwood City) in the upstairs classroom. If stairs are an issue and you'd like to attend, please let us know at info@dragonproductions.net.

Improv

 

Improvisation seminars are routinely used as training for tech companies. The San Francisco Chronicle had a great piece as to why that's worth a read

 

Improv For Anyone! SUMMER Session

Workshop leader: Corinne Kason
 

Our very popular Saturday morning Improv Class is back. This class welcomes everyone: those new to Improv, seasoned improvisers, actors who want to try this genre of theater, and all those in between who just want to have fun. Games are designed for everyone's enjoyment and growth.  Many techies, doctors, lawyers, couples, and homemakers find this class refreshing and fun and a way to unleash their creative talents and become more open and communicative.

 
Come give improv a try Saturday mornings at the Dragon Theatre. We've got a summer session scheduled starting in June, and if you've taken class with Corinne before you can certainly register again!

WHERE: The Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City (2120 Broadway Street) on the stage.
