Saturday, June 4 10am-1pm
Workshop will be held at Unscrewed Theater

The Armando: Years ago when Paul was a student at iO Chicago his class was one of the classes that Del Close used as guinea pigs when developing what would become The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience and Hootenanny or what we call the Armando nowadays.

In this class Paul will take you back into the mind of the mad genius Del Close and back to the original, more expansive version of the Armando and will help you realize the full potential of this popular form.

Maximum number of students for the workshop is 16. Students must be 18 years or older. Tuition is non-refundable.

Workshop sales close June 4 at 8am
