Just Get It Done: A Solo Show Workshop
If you have a New Year's resolution in 2014 to perform a solo show - this workshop is your first step to obtaining that goal. In this workshop, we will tackle the creating, writing and marketing of a one person show, culminating in a (optional) performance for each participant on the seventh week. Whether you have an idea for a show, are looking for an idea for a show, or are hoping to re-work a show you’ve already performed, this workshop will give you the tools to obtain your goal. Each class consists of lecture, performance time, as well as personal feedback. There will be writing assignments each week for you to bring in and workshop in front of others.
Carla has written and performed four solo shows that have toured LA's theater circuit. Her most recent work, Sweatlodged, had a sold-out run in Los Angeles in September and was a selection of the 2013 United Solo Fest in New York City. Carla has directed solo shows that have played at iO West, Comedy Central Stage, Hollywood Fringe Festival, and Out of Bounds Comedy Festival (2013). In this workshop, she will share her experience from the beginning of the process through completed project, as well as reveal the most important thing she does to ensure the completion of a show.
For years you’ve been talking about doing a solo show. What are you waiting for? Just get it done!
Carla's workshop is a warm, friendly and caring environment where you not only learn - but you are encouraged to let your creativity flow. I was so inspired that a little over a month after finishing the class, I had already finished a 30 minute version and performed my solo show to a sold out crowd! - Darrin Yalacki
I took the Solo Show Workshop without even the slightest idea what a solo show entailed. Carla's unique creative process and goal setting structure helped me to form an outline and marketing plan, and I left the class with over 15 minutes of material written. Highly recommended! - Juliette Pugh
Carla is very warm, caring and completely helped me pull my act together. Literally. She creates a no pressure environment and I'm looking at a space next week for my show. A must for anyone looking to put up their own show. - Nikki Wantz
I've seen Carla help first-timers find their voice and professionals step up their game -- she's an amazing teacher for performers at every level. - Will Stephens
