Veterans Community Theater Workshop
Melvin Ishmael Johnson, Artistic Director of Dramastage-Qumran, leads the workshop every Wednesday evening from 5 to 8 PM at The Vortex, 2341 E. Olympic Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles. He trains veterans to work as stage managers in the Los Angeles theater community, and coordinates mentoring and hands-on training in various aspects of media and theater production in collaboration with Skid Row Studios, Robey Theatre Company and The Vortex. Melvin, a Marine veteran, is leading our development of a full-scale Veterans Community Theater Company based on the Community Theater Model and NESONA Model, which merges the arts with anti-violence strategies and conflict resolution. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please support Melvin's work, and help us expand our services. Your contribution is fully tax-deductible, and will be used to cover expenses such as rental fees, insurance and honoraria for instructors. All veterans are welcome to attend the workshops free of charge. Just show up, or register below in advance.
