Q Brothers Workshop


The Q Brothers Company


Special Workshop

Event Date

 September 1-September 3

Roles to be Cast

Due to the limited time and nature of the workshop only 20 people will be selected to participate in the workshop.  Students will be considered if they participate in the Fall Auditions and fill out an index card expressing their interest.  The index cards will be available at the Fall Auditions Desk.  


The Q-Brothers is a hip-hop/rap group in Chicago that has had tremendous success nationally developing hip-hop plays from existing texts, especially Shakespeare. In three days, of course, they will just give some basics, but it will be great fun for and interesting.  Jackson Duran, who got his BA from our department a few years ago, is a Company Member and the Education Director for the group. In these workshops, participants work with an existing text, and adapt it using the language of hip hop with the ultimate goal of staging and performing their original add-rap-tation.


Please Note: Individuals who are cast in “American Idiot” will NOT be able to participate in the workshop.  Those cast in “Love Me Tender, Che Guevara” and “Hunting Bigfoot” may not be available for the workshop depending on rehearsals.
