How To Create a Sketch Show
Work with the legendary Kids in the Hall comedian Kevin McDonald in this two-day workshop that will have you crafting your own sketches into a full production. The weekend includes lectures on sketch comedy theory, both in the writing and production stages, spread throughout work sessions where you’ll receive notes and direction from Kevin. It’s a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves kind of experience that has you working alongside your friends and colleagues to put on a new sketch show that debuts Sunday night at the Arcade!
The workshop cost covers 12 hours of workshop time, with a break for lunch each day, as well as a ticket to both the Kevin McDonald Show on Saturday night and the Kevin McDonald Sketch Workshop Show on Sunday night.
