Make It GRAND! Workshop is the only workshop of its kind dedicated to training Masters of Ceremonies for today’s creative weddings. The reason this workshop is the “only one of its kind” is because unlike other workshops that focus simply on being a Master of Ceremonies, our focus is on the Grand Entrance and the importance of beginning the evening with a highly polished and personalized production that will make guests sit up and say “WOW!”
In addition, this is the only course being taught by two highly qualified and highly trained Masters of Ceremonies, one of whom holds a degree in Theatre and Directing for the Stage, which is very helpful for today’s elaborate “Production” weddings!
Finally, Peter and Liz are highly sought after Wedding Entertainer Directors™, who are currently working and entertaining in the challenging 21st century “YouTube”, “Facebook” and “Reality TV” environment and they are receiving RAVE REVIEWS across the country individually and as Co-Masters of Ceremonies!
Peter and Liz are Masters of their craft and proven professionals gifted at writing and delivering not only exceptional Grand Entrances, but at personalizing every moment of a wedding reception. Their flair for connecting with their couples as well as their family and friends is unmatched.
Every bride wants her wedding to be unique and fun and they need someone to help them optimize their vision! Make It GRAND! Workshop is the place to learn “how” to give your couples EXACTLY what they are looking for!
Make It GRAND! Workshop is a semester’s worth of information condensed into 16-hours of intense, eye-opening “hands-on” instruction that will give you the tools you need to deliver the results expected by today’s brides!
What to Expect
From the initial microphone exercise that includes your “opening statement” to the final “roast”, Make It GRAND! Workshop cultivates an invigorating and creative environment ensuring each attendee will meet their greatest potential.
Participants will work in an intimate setting of no more than 12 attendees. Honest and Constructive “Peer-to-Peer” interaction and feedback is vital to the growing and learning process. Just as with any artistic endeavor, the opportunity for advancement and learning is not limited to focusing solely on your own work. Enlightenment can and will occur if you stay connected while other participants are “in the spotlight.”
Participants will work on multiple writing and performance exercises designed to help them create their own voice and delivery style as a Master of Ceremonies.
Focus will be given to “tried and true” theatrical conventions guaranteed to engage your audience.
Participants will be given techniques designed to help them “take their stage” as a confident Master of Ceremonies allowing them to direct and guide any event with precision and ease.
Participants will learn how to command an audience without “screaming” or “intimidating” the guests. They will learn how to write for applause and laughter, they will learn how the use of proper staging and timing will dramatically improve their effectiveness.
And finally, participants will learn appropriate “roasting” techniques that are family friendly and HOW to use “sound drops” for maximum impact without diluting the effectiveness of their performance.
