Wanna learn how to make fun cartoon voices? Here’s a workshop to teach you just that…

Although not strictly theatre, I think this is a kinda cool thing.  I also suspect it could be very useful in a theatre way if you were doing puppet shows and stuff.  And, well, honestly, I’m always interested in stuff that gives you a peek behind how things work.  If you are too, you might want to check this workshop out.
