Description: Come hone your public speaking, storytelling, and feedback skills with your FCBA friends and colleagues in a fun and interactive mini-class from sketch comedy instructor Stephen Hale.  Stephen trained and performed with some amazing writers and improvisers with the Groundlings (Sunday Company), UCB (The Midnight Show) and iOWest (Winchester Prep Sketch Academy).  Participants will be given a short sketch writing assignment in advance of class.  During the event, we will read the prepared sketches aloud and discuss how to make improvements.  Open to all FCBA members, but limited to the first 20 registrants.

Cost: There is a $25.00 fee that will be payable to the instructor on-site at the training by cash, check, or PayPal.

RSVP by June 10: Online through the FCBA website no later than Monday, June 10 to ensure time to receive the writing prompt and prepare for the fun!
