Event: Actors workshopWhen: Sunday May 5 & Sunday May 12Where: Lake Dillon Theatre CompanyBRECKENRIDGE – An outside perspective is always refreshing. That’s the philosophy behind the Lake Dillon Theatre Co.’s acting workshops, which bring theater veterans from Denver to Dillon to teach local actors new techniques.Rick Barbour, production manager of the Denver Center Theatre Co.’s, will teach a workshop on audition technique to help aspiring actors and actresses overcome their anxieties over auditioning.”The audition system can result in a lot of stress and tension,” said Barbour. “There are ways to take charge of the event and create confidence and relaxation. The actor’s goal in audition is to be completely relaxed and themselves, not tense.”During the workshop, Barbour will conduct group exercises and work with participants individually to develop mental preparedness for auditions.Sharing his theatrical knowledge with students is no new feat for Barbour. He has taught theater classes for 15 years through various institutions including the National Theatre Conservatory, Denver Center Theater Academy, Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts, and the GeVa Theater conservatory. He has also been involved in several set design and acting projects.”It’s wonderful to have someone with so much teaching and theater experience,” said Kitty Hilsabeck, artistic director of the Lake Dillon Theatre Co.She said about 15 people, ranging in ages and abilities, already have signed up to work with Barbour.The Lake Dillon Theatre Company’s two-day acting workshop is Sunday, May 5 and Sunday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost for the two days of instruction is $40.
