The Cherry Orchard Project is offering a free voice and performance workshop with an opportunity to perform with six professional actors in your community May 5th from 11a to 12:30p at the Northfield Theatre Guild Theater at 411 West Third in Northfield.

Get on your feet and play! is a free voice and physical comedy workshop lead by Luverne Seifert (professional actor and trainer) and Darcey Engen (professional actor trainer and Chair of Theatre Arts at Augsburg College). The workshop will explore creating comedic characters through games, clowning techniques and improvisation. All ability levels are welcome and encouraged! This workshop is non-stressful and heavy on fun!  All actors ages 16 and up are encouraged to attend.  No experience necessary!

Immediately following the workshop, anyone interested will have the opportunity to audition for roles in a professional production happening in your community. The Cherry Orchard Project will be casting 2-4 actors to play speaking roles alongside professional actors who have performed on stages at the Guthrie, Children's Theatre, The Jungle Theater and others. It's an incredible opportunity to perform with an amazing group of professional actors. The production will run from July 11-15 and take place at the Historic Gunderson House in Kenyon. The Minnesota State Arts Board sponsors the workshop and the summer performance.
