"An actor who perceives little on the page, puts little on the stage".
Since I've been teaching over these last few years, there is one major common denominator I've found at the base of most actor's problems whether it be in Scene Study or On-Camera Audition class, making clear and strong choices that realize the moment.
This 4 week intensive is about sound techniques of reading a script that will help insure your interpretations are valid and stage/screen worthy. Learn to work Backwards as well as Forwards and mine the "gold" right off the page.
Acting is a collaborative process. After these 4 weeks, you'll bring more than you ever have to the table in auditions, rehearsals, and to set. I guarantee it.
Thursday nights 7-9 at the Johnny C Compound
March 15th - April 5th
