Paddy Crean Workshop Banff IOSP

Tooth & Claw has been invited to offer workshops and presentations throughout the country and around the world, and we'd like to come to you. In addition to hosting our own workshops, we've taught at the Winter Wonderland, Virginia Beach Bash, Carnage in the Corn, Rapier Wit Intensives, and the Paddy Crean International Workshop.

Tooth & Claw has collaborated with major DC theatres to offer a wide range of workshops, bringing together students from across the country and an international faculty for intensive trainging.  For more information, click the titles below.
