GEORGIA THEATRE CONFERENCE 2014
Special Guests of GTC
Jasmine Guy, Keynote Speaker
Perhaps best known for her roles as Whitley Gilbert on A DIFFERENT WORLD, Grams on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, and as Velma Kelly in the Broadway revival of CHICAGO, Actor-dancer-director Jasmine Guy has enjoyed a long and diverse career in television, theater, film and recording.
As a frequent motivational public speaker, Jasmine is called upon to share her story openly with those who may benefit from her trials and triumphs. Her ongoing desire to blend balance and discipline with ambition and service continues to fuel her passion for the arts.
Join us to hear Ms. Guy's inspirational keynote address, and stay for question-and-answer session with the audience. And there is a surprise in store for 8 lucky High Schools!
Timothy Mooney is the author of "Shakespeare's Histories; Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!" which "cracks the code" on Shakespeare's most challenging plays, making them accessible to the average, as well as to sophisticated audiences everywhere. Mooney's acting textbook "Acting at the Speed of Life" is breathing life into stylistic performance at high schools and colleges, while his "The Big Book of Moliere Monologues," has given actors everywhere a new resource for comic classical auditions. Tim has given over a hundred thousand students their first introduction to Moliere through his one-man play, "Moliere Than Thou." Mr. Mooney is the former founder and editor of "The Script Review" and was the Artistic Director of Chicago's Stage Two Theatre, where he produced nearly fifty plays in five years, which eventually included many new versions of the plays of Moliere, featuring Mooney's impish sense of rhyme. Mr. Mooney continues to present his one-man shows across North America, including "Criteria, a One-Man Comic Sci-Fi Thriller" , and we are thrilled that he's bringing it to GTC!
