Our speaker for this month is actor, director, writer, and theatre educator Robin Clipsham.
Robin has spent most of her life in theatre. She founded and developed a theatre company for young people, taught theatre performance and production for Nipissing University, spent over 25 years as a theatre educator, and is an award-winning improvisational theatre coach.
Winner of four awards for her work in locally developed community theatre, Robin has contributed her time and expertise to local initiatives for over 20 years as Artistic Director for Muskoka StageWorks . Robin is also an accomplished actor and director and lives in Muskoka with her husband, Michael.
Robin's presentation will cover the various aspects and attributes of playing improv for fun and for health, especially as we age. It will also go into the various skills involved/developed for doing improv and, using 5 club members, "play" a number of the entry level games and talk about the skills we are using/developing with each one. Along the way, we will have a few, or a lot, of laughs!!
For all our general meetings, the 'formal' part will start at 10:30am but the Zoom room(s) will be open from 10:00a.m. onwards if you want to sign-in early and 'mingle' with your fellow members.
