Playing Cute Characters- How to Make the Audience Fall in Love with You (Online Taster Session)

Wednesday 3rd February
19:30 – 21:00

Baby Yoda, Puss in Boots, Nemo (and Dory), Totoro….there’s nothing like an unquestionably adorable character to unite the audience into a collective moment of ‘awww’.

In this taster session, we’ll explore what these characters have in common and practice channeling our inner cute. We’ll dip our toe into how we can use the ‘cute character factor’ as part of a story to win the audience over AND subvert their expectations.
