Comedy Writing and Social Media for Artists at Primary Stages ESPA!

There are still spots available in online classes at Primary Stages ESPA starting in August! Whether you’re looking to dive into your comedy writing or build your brand via social media, we’re here to help you continue to learn and grow your art - online!

Instructor: Kate Moira Ryan (Writer (with Judy Gold), 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother and The Judy Show at Primary Stages and DR2 Theatre)
Starting August 4
A solid grasp of the mechanics of comedy writing for the stage is a powerful tool in the hand of any playwright. While comedy is a main element of an over-the-top farce or a burning satire, it is just as essential to delicately lace comic elements into the most serious drama. In this class, you will shape your ideas, structure your plot, develop believable characters, and write witty dialogue.

Instructor: Dana Lerner (Tony Award-Nominated Producer for Broadway's Indecent and Company, Founder and CEO of Red Pelican Creative)
Monday, August 10
Social media has become an instrumental place to promote your work and establish your brand - and whether you love it or hate it, it's one of the best marketing tools that you have as an artist. Whether you're new to this online content or a social media expert, Dana will help you focus your messaging in order to build your brand.
