Lewis University Philip Lynch Theatre Manager Jo Slowik of Joliet and Lewis University students Justin Anderson of New Lenox and Bradford Bingham of Chicago presented an Acting Workshop November 11 at Minooka Community High School.

The workshop was arranged by Minooka High School teacher and speech team coach, Olivia Gerk of New Lenox.

The workshop focused on three areas for the high school students, warm-up exercises, improv and Meisner technique exercises as well as individualized coaching. The physical and vocal warm-up exercises assist and control nervous energy or stage fright in a speech tournament competition setting. Improv games and Meisner technique exercises create partnership bonding and trust. Individual coaching also was provided to the high school students in their competition areas of public speaking, comedic and dramatic duets, as well as interpretation events.

The high school students are preparing for their first speech team tournament on December 2.
