Nineteen students from Seward High School attended the Theatre and Speech Workshop on Sept. 13 at Concordia. The students attended a variety of workshops on topics such as warm-ups, breathing, relaxation techniques and stage presence. Sessions were presented on general speech, vocals and non-vocals, public speaking, prep time, stage safety and stage combat. The event concluded with a showcase event.
Bryan Moore, director of theatre at Concordia, and Joy Johnson, director of forensics at Concordia, coordinated the event along with Concordia speech and theatre students.
“What an invaluable experience for high school students to have this opportunity to work one-on-one with a college student,” Johnson said. “The theatre and speech workshop was also rewarding for the college students, as they gained valuable experience leading sessions, critiquing interpretation exercises and encouraging high school students to challenge their acting abilities.”
