Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales mystery and the macabre. This spooky fall workshop will dig deep into this adaptation of Poe’s writings, developing characters and pushing our acting skills as we look for motivations for these tales and the fine art of telling them live. This workshop is dear to me and will be a unique opportunity to experience the true ability to engage others in the tradition of passing along the spooky tales of old.
