How to Write Your One Person Show with Brenda Adelman

Finish Up the Year Strong and Have Scenes Written!

Actors need to express themselves. The one-person show format puts the control into the performers hands. No waiting to be cast. No more being a background player in your life. Instead your story, your message and your talent put you center stage.

This is a class where we’ll identify events in your life that shaped you, shocked you, devastated you, surprised you, humored you and most definitely had an impact. We’ll explore the theme of your life, dive deeply into character and solo performance. You’ve got a message to share and you are going to learn how to put it into your show. You’ll get the skills you need to stand out and make an impact.

This is a four week class. You’ll be writing and putting your material on its feet each week for feedback and we’ll set a goal for you to have a short polished piece ready to present by the end of the series.

Brenda Adelman has performed in three countries, across the United States and for over 11,000 people.
