About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, November 30, 2023.

The Short Fuse Theatre Project: The Holiday Movie Edition The Short Fuse Theatre Project is a theatrical adventure focusing on the production and creation of four unique short “movies” for this Edition. These “shorts” will be fused together to create a film making experience completely written and performed by the actors and actresses themselves. This is a fast paced, intensive acting program that will require full attention, patience, flexibility, good listening skills, and making quick creative/artistic decisions on the fly. The theatre troupe will be broken up into teams. Each team will be lead by a Short Fuse staff member who will guide their team to build a script, develop their characters, block their scenes and ultimately create their short film. These shorts will fuse together in a short amount of time creating a spectacular showcase film. Short Fuse Program Directors will challenge the troupe as a whole to use a specific prop, character and line in their Holiday Themed script/short. Where each team goes from there is anyone’s guess, you will have to come to the show to see! This experience is entirely team-based… there are no leads, every member is a critical part of the cast.
