Whether one is interested in acting, writing or directing, it is vital that one understands the basics of storytelling. For both movie buffs and theater fans alike, the Detroit Mercy Theatre Company is offering a seminar at the Royal Oak Public library to teach the basics of scene structure.
The lesson will be an interactive one, borrowing key scenes from “A Bright New Boise” by playwright Samuel D. Hunter. Hunter’s work begins as a comedy in the break room of a Boise, Idaho, Hobby Lobby, and then slowly turns into a darker tale of scandal and confrontation. Students of Detroit Mercy’s class will learn about the importance of both the information in a scene, and how the way that information is presented can affect an audience’s perception of the story. Attendees of the free event will also familiarize themselves with the common choices that scene writers make in order to convey a point.
