Let's Be Frank, By George!

Milwaukee has quickly become the go-to place for big name performers and comedy acts the last few years. But it’s not too often that one of these top notch names comes to town for a big show AND offers a FREE hands-on workshop at The UC as well. Comedy legend Frank Ferrante will present an hour long interactive workshop, Creating a One-Person Show for free Thursday, April 25th at 6pm in The Underground Collaborative.

Frank Ferrante shares his experience developing his two solo shows “An Evening With Groucho” and “By George” – based on the life of legendary director/playwright George S. Kaufman (“The Man Who Came to Dinner,” “You Can’t Take It With You,” etc.) Mr. Ferrante offers approaches and tools to theater students interested in pursuing acting careers emphasizing the importance of research, observation and character development.
