READER'S THEATRE/COLD READING TECHNIQUES

Let's face it; acting is much more than just memorizing lines. This class will provide an innovative communication tool that supports the actor's ability to connect organically with their scene partner and takes away the pressure and obstacle of memorizing lines. This reading technique supports true communication between actors and will provide the technical skills of how to map out when an actor stays on the page reading and when they come off. It allows the actor to do their work and play the scene without losing the connection to the other actors. This is an excellent way to prepare for a cold reading audition situation and especially for August: Osage County auditions early February!

Date: Thursdays, October 3 - November 7
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Requirements: Ages 16+
Class Fee:$85

ACTOR'S TOOLBOX

This class is the perfect combination of core fundamental acting exercises, scene study and audition preparation. Students will be given a practical set of tools to help them with the basic dramatic expectations of the actor, as well as helping them find their way with a script. Work on building a scene with a partner and how to connect the scene to the play. This class also focuses on developing monologue material and learning to experience each audition as a welcome performance opportunity. Whether you are new to acting or have auditioned for several shows, you will feel supported and have something to add to your repertoire for successful acting.

Date: Tuesdays, February 4 - March 10
