What goes on in an Acting Class?

An acting class allows the actor to try new things without the pressure of deadlines and audience expectations. It also allows the actor the opportunity to observe others as they experiment and make new discoveries; it’s “play” at its best. Each week we will do an exercise chosen to offer us a new skill or a new perspective that we can use immediately in our next audition or rehearsal. Topics include creating a character, endowing your location, creating a relationship, and the use of rehearsal props. There is minimal homework, and if people would like to tackle a monologue or scene work that will be encouraged in Weeks 3 - 6. Each class is cumulative so regular attendance is recommended.

Class size is limited to 10 participants maximum. Ages 18+ welcome.
