Kids/Teens Solo Sketch Character Workshop
with John Buisman
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CHARACTERS!
Join us for our Kids & Teen Sketch Character workshop at the Village Theatre with John Buisman!
• Review the basics of sketch comedy
• Broaden their range by experimenting with different character types, accents, physicalities (physical and vocal choices), etc.
• Work on characters by adding different layers for comedic effect
• Learn how to write their own sketch piece in the voice of their character
• Practice performing their solo sketch piece with direction by their instructor
Class is limited to 8 students (minimum of 6), so register now to reserve your place!
We will work and support each other as we grow and build upon and enhance your comedic chops!
On the 10th of December years ago, John Philip Buisman emerged from the woods of Saskatchewan with nothing but a half-eaten jar of Nutella and a rubber Chicken. Where he comes from is a mystery. When the Canadian police asked him his name, he responded with "????"
Kidding. (We think.)
John graduated Summa Cum Laude with his BA in Theatre in 2017 from the University of Georgia (that is actually a real detail of his life). He is completely OBSESSED with sketch comedy, and, as a result, has done a ton of shows with Sketchworks! John has worked in the Sketchworks summer camps for the past two summers, and will also be teaching the camps as lead instructor for this upcoming summer 2019. He has a passion for extracurricular education, and works in the sleepover program at the Georgia Aquarium.
John's previous theatre credits include "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged," "Skin of Our Teeth," "Machinal," and "ZOOM! POW! SMASH!" which premiered at the Atlanta Fringe Festival. His on-screen credits include film "34 Inches" and web series "Classy Suzette."
