Flying SOULO: Your Story on Stage

With Tracey Erin Smith

August 11 - 16, 2023

Program is fully booked

Transform your life stories into a Solo Theater Show or a Keynote Talk. Using improvisation, writing exercises and one-on-one coaching with award-winning director Tracey Erin Smith, uncover the stories that need to be told and transform your truth into a powerful and entertaining show or talk.

Tracey is a true wizard who creates a whole lot of magic in every workshop she leads. She will help you discover the essential truths of your life and give you the confidence to share them with the world. – Anne Bokma, Author “My Year of Living Spiritually”

Tracey provides a safe environment where you discover your own voice, what you want to say and how only you can say it. Bring to life the characters who’ve affected you on your journey and the characters that live inside you to create a show or talk that touches people’s hearts and funny bones. You will be guided every step of the way: from generating ideas, trying them out, and polishing them until they shine. At the end of the week, you’ll have an opportunity to share your work-in-progress with the Hollyhock community.

I came into the class feeling skeptical that my story wouldn’t be of any interest to anyone but myself. What I found was a wonderful group of people who validated my life’s narrative and helped me to give my story value through the creation of my 10 minute piece. This workshop is guided by a woman with enough wisdom, depth and personal experience to boundlessly lead all of us down the rabbit holes of our inner souls. – Morgan Joy
