Snowlion Repertory Company Offers Acting Workshop, 7/7-8/4
Teacher Al D'Andrea and his students will use a variety of games, exercises, techniques and improvisations to take an in-depth look at how to develop and embody a character in a play from the ground up with both imagination and authenticity. Major aspects of character that will be explored include character wants and needs, attitudes, traits, physicality and emotional life, as well as how and why a character moves, speaks, thinks, feels, engages in physical activities, and pursues actions and objectives in a particular way.
The workshop is ideal for experienced actors who seek to master their use of this important element of stagecraft, while beginning actors receive a strong foundation in understanding the many and varied aspects that define a human being and how to embody them in a living and breathing character on the stage. The class is open to all, ages 16 and up.

5 Mondays: July 7 - August 4, 2014 from 7 to 9 pm at Studio 408, located at 408 Broadway, South Portland.
