So your friends think you’re funny!  They say, “You should be on stage!” Here's your chance to be in the spotlight, perhaps live out a long-held dream. In a relaxed classroom atmosphere, develop your own personal routine by honing your performance skills and writing original material that’s right for your unique stage character. The culmination will be a real stage performance before an audience of your family and friends in May. Course content may include adult material and language. Participant Fee: $12, payable to the instructor at the first class for a DVD of the performance in May.
