Theatre NorthWest offers stage-fighting workshops

Thomas Usher

This September Theatre NorthWest will host certified Stage Combat Choreographer Thomas Usher for two stage-combat workshops.

“To fight safely on stage is an important part of many productions,” says Thomas Usher, stage combat choreographer. Usher has been directing plays and choreographing fights for 30 years.

“We are so excited to be able to offer this course,” said Marnie Hamagami, Artistic Producer at Theatre NorthWest. “TNW is committed to developing and maintaining the artistic skills of local actors. Offering workshops like this is part of the goals of the organization to employ more local artists.”

These are two district workshops, and artists are free to sign up to either or both. The first is for people learning to stage a fight, scuffle, or fall safely on stage. The second is the use of weaponry on stage. More information is available online at
