Caetani Centre fall programs open

Registration is now open for all fall programming at the Caetani Centre.

Registration is now open for all fall programming at the Caetani Centre.

Whether it’s theatre, writing workshops, or marketing, the Caetani Centre has a class for all.

Beginning this month, the Caetani Centre will be providing youth drama classes with Amelia Sirianni, youth and adult writing workshops with Lorna Tureski, and art marketing workshops with Kristin Froneman.

For young drama enthusiast, the Youth Theatre Foundation classes with Sirianni will encourage budding actors to discover their inner performer. Originally from Vernon, Sirianni spent the last decade working as a professional actor in Toronto. She received her formal professional training at the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts and has since had the privilege of performing on stages across North America as well as in film and television. Sirianni will be offering classes for youths ages seven-10 and 11-and-up.

Marketing art can be difficult, but with Froneman’s class: Getting The Word Out The ‘Write’ Way, it has never been easier. Froneman, who many may know from her years working as the arts and entertainment editor at The Morning Star, will “take you through steps to write that press release, artist statement, query or application in a way that is not convoluted and that will speak to your intended audience.” She will be offering classes focusing on how to promote your work through writing.

Tureski will also be offering several writing workshops, including Write Speak: Spoken Word Youth Writing for girls ages 14-18, Travelling Oak Table Sessions Fundamentals and Diving Deeper for women, and Ramble: mineral, vegetable, animal and human writing workshops. She encourages women to “Bring your tales, whoppers, mythical events, birth, death experiences and anything else you might want to get down on paper. Or just show up and write from the prompts I will give you. Learn how to breathe life into your stories.” Tureski loves to write all sorts of things, such as the play, We’re Already Home, a collaborative project published by Wild Sage Press in 2014. Recently, Tureski has been working with Runaway Moon Theatre’s How Did You Get Here? suitcase puppet show project. She has an MFA in creative writing from UBCO.

Space is limited, so participants are advised to register early. Registration can be completed on-line at
