Deaf theater workshop is offered

CHAMPION — A free workshop on improvisational techniques for deaf theater is scheduled 1 to 4 p.m. March 23 in the student union at Kent State University at Trumbull, 4314 Mahoning Ave. NW.

Joey Caverly will facilitate the workshop. He is an improv veteran, an actor who has appeared on Broadway (“Children of a Lesser God”) and television (“Chicago Med”), a theater director and a founding member of the Royal 46 Kazoo Band of Walla Walla, Washington.
