LIGHTS! CAMERA! PUPPETS!
Monitor Night is our regular two-part class that is open to anyone 15 years old or older who is interested in learning about the art of TV puppetry performance.
For our September Monitor Night we are honored to invite Special Guest and industry pro, Stephanie D'Abruzzo!
Stephanie (@DAbruzzoTweets) has been a professional showbiz hyphenate since 1993: actor, singer, voiceover artist, and puppeteer. She has performed more than 400 puppet and animated characters for film and television. Some of her television puppetry credits include Sesame Street (23 seasons), The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss,Oobi, the Sesame Street episode of Scrubs, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, and Julie’s Greenroom. She is perhaps best known for her Tony and Drama Desk-nominated roles in Avenue Q. Stephanie is also a former Burger King Employee of the Month, and the unofficial First Lady of the Jim Henson Legacy. www.stephaniedabruzzo.com
Stephanie will be focusing on the challenge of conveying emotion without speaking (using eye focus and other body language), the art of listening when another character is speaking, and what to do in a big group scene when you are in the background and do not have any lines. Trust us, you will not want to miss this Monitor Night!
Monitor Night takes place on the first Tuesday of every month.
Special Guest Price: $25 per person
RSVPs are strongly appreciated as we will be capping this event at 20 people.
