This two-day intensive will go over the following topics:

SATURDAY – MARCH 24 – 10 AM – 5 PM: THE BASICS OF BUSINESS

Open to anyone at any level of acting, ages 15 and older.

Highlights of the workshop include:

SUNDAY – MARCH 25 – 10 AM – 5 PM: COLD READING TECH – ACTORS WORKOUT

We go deeper with “sides” (scenes from the script) given out in advance. Every audition is different. Some use improvisation. Some are scripted. Some are pages of dialogue and some are just one line. Each experience in class will be different for each actor.

–“Attacking the material” – Script evaluation. What do they want?!
–What can you use to substitute
–Character bios “the questions.”
