Chubbuck 101: Acting Bootcamp

Throughout the four-day workshop, students will learn how to integrate their personal history with the character using the tools to tell a story. By encouraging students to embrace their vulnerabilities, the Chubbuck Technique enables young actors to shed their shells and portray their most empowered selves. There will be many performance-driven exercises so make sure you are ready to be inspired, perform, and learn.
