Catawba College welcomes the New York-based Strangemen & Company and Theatre Arts alumna Amanda Lederer ’10 to campus for a forum and a two-day master class in late August. Lederer serves as an actor, executive producer, and outreach director for Strangemen & Company.

The forum is free and open to the public and is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 25, in Hedrick Little Theatre on campus.  A two-day master class, exclusively for Catawba Theatre Arts students, is scheduled on Saturday and Sunday, August 26 and 27. 

By the “fusion of movement, sound, shapes and text,” the Strangemen & Company master class will offer students “a hands on experience” utilizing various techniques grounded in “movement-based theatrical techniques, clown, puppetry and the various, crucial elements of thematic study to dig into a story’s potential.” The idea behind the master class is to broaden “an artist’s arsenal of creation.”
