Throughout the rehearsal process, actors will hone their performance skills while building a supportive ensemble through their favorite theater games and exercises!

Join us on those pesky D65 Wednesday half-days for an afternoon workshop full of creative fun! Geared towards 10-14 year olds. 

Fall Workshops

OCTOBER 3RD from 1-4:30PM
Join us in solving an original murder mystery written just for this workshop! Every student will get a character and through physical and vocal improvisation games will develop their backstory and persona as we uncover clues to the what, where, why, and how of the tragic (fake) murder of one of Mudlark’s staff. Can you help us solve the mystery?

NOVEMBER 7TH from 1-4:30PM
Get a crash course in devising as we come together to create an original short play in just three and a half hours! Through a series of improvisation games and group devising activities we will generate a 5-10 minute play that showcases the skills and imaginations of every student. Will it be silly? Terrifying? Fantastical? It’s up to you to decide.

DECEMBER 5TH from 1-4:30PM
Auditions and callbacks are a lot more than monologues – they often consist of cold readings, group games, and devising. Practice and hone these skills while learning more about what you may be asked to do at any given audition and getting constructive feedback on your work. Come ready to make big, fun choices!

*All half-day Workshops are held at 1417 Hinman Ave
*Our half-day workshops are now from
1-4:30pm to better serve your needs!
