Our Podcast Episodes

  Artistic Director Barbra French offers community theatre artists tips, tricks and stories to help them prepare for theatre re-openings and raise the bar on their knowledge and performance skills.  These 5-10 minute weekly podcasts will cover a wide range of topics, such as tips on voice production, character building, taking (or giving) notes, script analysis, speaking the actors’ language (for directors) and so much more.  Join us, theatre lovers!
