The Cowichan Musical Society and director Gregg Perry will be offering four acting workshops titled ‘From Script to Standing Ovation’ on Saturday mornings at Adagé Studio at 540 Cairnsmore St. in Duncan for the month of June.

Classes will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon on June 1, 8, 15, and 22. A donation of $20 per session is suggested, tax receipts are available and all proceeds will go towards the Cowichan Valley Performing Arts Foundation student bursary program. Donations will be paid at each session in case participants are unable to attend all four sessions.

Perry began his journey into drama in 1977 while attending Bowness High School in Calgary, Alta. He has been honing his craft ever since. Over the span of the past two decades, Perry has not only donned a director’s and producer’s cap but has also acted in a myriad of plays and musicals with the Chemainus Theatre Festival, the Cowichan Musical Society, the Bard@Brentwood, the Shawnigan Players, the Kaatza Lakeside Players, the Yellowpoint Drama Group, Victoria’s Langham Court Theatre, the Mercury Players, and Adagé Dance Studio.

“I plan to offer very practical instruction for amateur actors and students of theatre who want to improve their skills and increase their satisfaction in local performing arts experiences or prepare for auditions,” said Perry.

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable loose clothing as well as indoor runners or dance shoes ideal for moving in. To reserve your spot or to find out more information visit
