Acting Workshop For Adults

For actors at any level, an in-depth look at the fundamentals of acting for new students and a refresher for those with previous experience. Students will build and apply these skills to monologues, scenes, and ensemble exercises, culminating in a sharing of work at the final class meeting. Ideal for those who have always wanted to give acting a try, those who’d like to learn more about performing opportunities in the area, and professionals who’d like to brush up on presentation skills.
