Story Building Blocks
with Sean Joseph Choo
July 26, 2021
6:00 pm at Manoa Valley Theatre
Join local award winning artist Sean Choo as he explores deeper into the principle of storytelling and the beginning fundamentals of starting your own play. We will examine the structure, dialogue, theme and help you leave with the building blocks you need to start crafting your own script. Everyone is welcome, especially beginning writers.
Sean-Joseph Choo is an actor, composer, and writer based in Honolulu, Hawai'i. He is interested in stories of the unheard, the unseen, and the unknown, and likes to imagine how the topics of religion, queerness, and culture intersect and conflict, and how they can be dramatized. Sean is dedicated to stories that are born from and belong to Hawai'i.
A company actor employed at Honolulu Theatre for Youth, he has helped devise many theatre for young audience shows. Most recently his acting/composing/writing work can be seen on "The HI Way" broadcasting on Hawaii News Now.
Sean's plays have been selected for readings at Playbuilders of Hawai'i (short plays: Dirty Kitchen, Happy Bar and Da Kine Hawaiian Soap Opera, full length play: Beretania Snapshots) and various events at Kumu Kahua Theatre (one acts: Origami, Kanpai Kindness, Janice Nakayama is My Ex-Girlfriend). He was accepted into the inaugural Creative Lab Hawai'i Weekend Ideation Program in Theater, and is excited to be one of the three playwrights accepted into the 2021 Creative Lab Hawai'i Playwrights Immersive Program.
He is a member of the Dramatists Guild, the Playwright Development Committee at Kumu Kahua Theatre, and the Consortium of Asian American Theaters & Artists.
