LCC Offers Theatre Mask Making & Commedia Class

September 6, 2017

Parsons, KS- Labette Community College will offer commedia and a mask making classes. Students can entertain and create their own work by learning slaps, trips and falls.

Commedia uses masks, physical comedy, improvisation, and recognizable character types: young lovers, wily servants, greedy old men, know-it-all professors, boasting heroes, and the like.

Students can also learn to build performance style masks at the mask making class. In this class students will design and custom-build their own paper mâché masks. The class provides students an opportunity to be creative in professionally-made masks to understand how they function.

The mask making class will be held Wednesdays, 5:30-9:30pm, from September 20-December 6 in LCC building H109. The commedia class will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9pm, from October 10-December 12 in LCC Thiebaud Theatre.
