Theatre Workshops Come to Plymouth

The Guthrie and Hennepin County Library will offer theatre workshops in and around Plymouth this month.

Does your teen love theatre? Do you have student that wants to explore acting? Are you an adult with a flair for the dramatic?

The Guthrie Theater and Hennepin County Library are teaming up to present 12 free theatre workshops for children, teens, and adults in January. The winter “Act Out” workshops began in December and run through February, and teach basic theatre technique.

 “Many people don’t have outlets in everyday life to explore their own creativity,” said Louise Chalfant, director of education at the Guthrie Theater. “Our workshops encourage people to have fun, try new things and to open themselves up to original, and sometimes unexpected, paths of expression.”

The workshops are funded by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Registration is required.

There are three upcoming events that are in or near Plymouth. The details are below.
