Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Black Theatre Workshop provides virtual theatre-oriented workshops for students all across Quebec. Our facilitator, Abena Bentley, will teach participants script analysis using the Broadway classic A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. Participants will be taught text analyzation techniques and the importance of understanding author intent. This workshop is best suited for students from Sec 1-3.
