Theatrical Workshops

Open House

Aftershock has always wanted to give as much as it can to the community, through theatre. Well now, we’d like to show others how to do the same! Come attend Aftershock’s FREE workshop open house! Unlike most of our open houses, which focus on showing off and performing for you, this open house will be all about teaching you to do what we do, via workshops. There will also be items available for purchase from Hillary’s Handmade, as well as Aftershock DVDs. Come support Aftershock and learn from our experienced performers, as they teach you what they know about their craft. You can learn how to audition, how to improvise, you’ll learn about singing, dancing, acting, stage combat, and more. So grab a friend, and come on by to pick up gifts, and or a new set of skills- for beginner and advanced performers alike!
