Thomas is an established writer, director producer with a twenty plus year career working in the entertainment industry in Hollywood, CA. Teens 16+ and Adults. Limit 8 students

Join Jami to learn the techniques, and exercise the muscles that lead to great theatre and indeed give you the ability to think on your feet in any situation. Learn how to really listen and create with your fellow actors. Develop characters that will become a part of your theatrical repertoire to be used again and again.
