Local Professional Acting Classes Offered at Rubicon Theatre

Rubicon offers process-oriented acting classes for kids (beginning at age five) and adults. These
programs focus on developing skills and technique, basic theatre terminology, building confidence and stage presence, learning proper voice techniques and developing an awareness of body language through character work, and other fundamental techniques through improvisation, scene study and theatre games. We operate in a nurturing environment where participants are encouraged to increase their comfort zone and participate at their own pace.

Classes provide participants the opportunity to study with “teaching artists.” Teaching artists are Working Theatre professionals who hold a high level degree or experience in voice and speech, acting, playwriting, Shakespeare, movement or audition techniques. With an average class size of 15, these courses offer close interaction and individual attention and culminate with a final presentation of the student’s work for family and friends.

Prices of classes range from $185-$310. The deadline to register is February 27, 2012.To read
