SCENE & MONOLOGUE STUDY course:
Designed for actors, directors, theater artists or anyone with some prior training or professional experience, this 8-week course focuses on refining the actor's skills. This is a laboratory where actors will be challenged with contemporary scene work and both contemporary and classical monologue work. A select group of actors will be assembled for these 8 weeks. This will be a fun, challenging class for actors who want to sharpen their tools, learn how to ask smart questions, make strong choices, break bad habits, and cultivate character through the self with honesty, integrity, simplicity and playfulness. All are welcome to audition. The session will culminate with a "sharing" of the work open to invited guests, followed by a reception. $240 for 8 weeks
