Hatbox Theatre's educational series for theatre artists and the public looking to explore the theatrical arts and expand their capabilities. Each month we hold a two-hour (plus!) workshop on different topics including: lighting, sound, projections, costumes, design, acting, improv, directing, publicity and more!


Scenic Painting Techniques with Hannah Joy Smith


Lighting Fixtures: What They Do and How They Do It with Andrew Pinard

The first of a series of lighting workshops planned, this will be a hands on workshop where attendees will learn how to operate a variety of fixtures and how they are maintained, hung, focused, and controlled. Future topics to include design and programming of a light board.


Shakespeare Conservatory Workshop

This workshop, for both beginners and those with more advanced experience acting Shakespeare’s work, will introduce conservatory-level acting exercises and coaching in embodying, clarifying, and activating Shakespeare verse materials. Have a monologue or soliloquy you’re working on? Bring it in! If not, no worries, all welcome and encouraged! Please do dress to move, and bring a ball with some weight (if possible), as well as two copies of your monologue/soliloquy (if relevant).

Led by Michael Cobb, past coach for the Shakespeare Theater in Washington, D.C., Guthrie Theater, Denver Center Theater Company, and Theater de la Jeune Lune, and former Head of Text at the National Theatre Conservatory and full-time graduate and undergraduate acting and voice faculty at Universities of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Utah.
