Date: FEBRUARy 24

Time:  1 - 3 PM

Location: Fort COlumbia Theater, Chinook WA

The Stage is yours.... or backstage, or the light booth, whatever....

Everyone needs an outlet to express themselves, a vibrant place to grow and learn, without being judged. This is what PAPA strives to bring, with every event it puts on! 

While learning how to be present in the moment, students build acting, design, and communication skills in a spirited and supportive environment. The experience focuses on the individual expression of each student while developing truth on stage and skills to utilize in their everyday lives. 

Whether you've never stepped foot on stage in your life or you're looking to beef up your skills, this workshop is aimed at giving you a crash course in the process, from dreaming something up to making it a reality! 

So get ready to do things like run around on stage, rummage through costumes and props, talk about intention, create your own character, and master the human machine game. We can learn what directors want, what designers go through, how to be a stage manager who rules the world and have a ton of fun! Bring your questions and interests and we can cater to you!


Brooke Flood / Teacher

If there's one girl who wears too many hats, it's Brooke. That's why we think she's the perfect one to teach this workshop. She grew up in Long Beach, and blames her love of musicals on her role model, Barbara Poulshock, who started giving Brooke piano and voice lessons at age 6. At George Fox University Brooke had the opportunity to dive into all the aspects of theatre, onstage and off, and willingly exclaims that she has a passion for theatre that only grows and grows with each production.  Brooke is excited to teach a well-rounded theatre workshop, and not just an "acting" one. She is also very excited about directing their upcoming, summer, mainstage production, Disney's “Beauty and the Beast” with her mentor, Barbara, at her side as the musical director. 

Besides starring in many of PAPA's own productions growing up such as Hodel in "Fiddler on the Roof" and the baker's wife in "Into the Woods" Brooke has also earned her BA in Theatre : Acting/Directing & Tech/Design from George Fox University as well as being accepted to the Open Jar Institute in New York for their Broadway musical theatre intensive course.

Brooke is an accomplished theatre actor, choreographer and director who hopes to inspire students in their pursuit of theatre, and in their pursuit of life.  Please join her for a heartfelt and fun journey into the world of theatre!

Ronald Thompson / Assistant

Ronald is a strapping young lad all the way from Texas. He moved to the Oregon coast when he was 19  and currently is the manager and a personal trainer at Fitness 1440 in Warrenton. He resides in Astoria with his amazingly supportive wife and son.

Although fitness is his main passion he grew up playing the piano and at a very young age even had the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York. He got his start in PAPA by playing piano for their summer musical Hello Dolly! And became PAPA’s go-to pianist for several years. He never thought he would end up on the stage, until he showed up to play accompaniment for Cinderella and ended up making his stage debut portraying Prince Henry! Since then he has held the roles of Dauntless in Once Upon a Mattress and Mr Nowak in She Loves Me!  Onstage and off  he is a valued part of the community and even trains new volunteers how to operate the complex music system that is now in use.  

Ron is very excited to be assisting with this workshop and hopes with his varied background and lively spirit he can help students become more comfortable onstage and off. He believes there is something amazing about seeing a production and knowing that you had a major part in making it happen. Through dedication and teamwork you can make what some people just dream about, become a reality!
