Caroline Mitchell ’15 leads acting workshop for Wolf Theater Guild
On Friday, Nov. 12, Wesleyan graduate Caroline Mitchell ’15 led workshops for the Wolf Theater Guild in Lencke Theater. The workshops were focused on helping students understand what it means to be in each other’s space on stage and how to engage with one another effectively and respectfully as a cast.
“We were so grateful to spend time with Caroline,” said Stephanie Simmons, high school theater director and sponsor of the Guild. “Knowing how to engage with one another in scenes that call for a lot of togetherness and often comedic behavior can be a challenge for many young actors. Caroline brought great perspective to our students and led them through exercises to help them anticipate how to best approach these situations on stage.”
Caroline is a 2015 graduate of Wesleyan School and a graduate of Brenau University, where she earned a BFA in Acting with the Gainesville Theatre Alliance and a minor in Mass Communications. Upon graduation, she participated in an “Intimacy for the Stage” intensive program, worked as an artistic intern with Theatrical Outfit in Atlanta where she was an assistant director for shows, dramaturgy intern, and served as the executive assistant and intimacy director with a local performing arts nonprofit. Caroline now puts her acting skills to work as she pursues a full-time career as a voice-over artist and is proudly represented by J Pervis Talent.
The Wolf Theater Guild is a new addition to our student activities offerings this year. Students who enjoy performing and have a soft spot for the theatrical arts are invited to join. Any student may participate, and previous audition or show experience is not required. Interested students can join by contacting Mrs. Simmons.
