Scene Study Acting Workshop
Participants will work on scenes designed to help them find the key to being spontaneous and alive on the stage; explore techniques which will facilitate their ability to work moment-to-moment; enhance listening skills to make responses authentic and imaginative; clarify objectives; utilize tried and true methods designed to enable one to be present and totally “there” right off the top of a scene.
This scene study workshop provides an opportunity for actors to develop their practice using scripted material, enhancing their ability to act from a deeply personal and freely imaginative place, bringing spontaneity and truthfulness to their work. Tools and exercises will be incorporated with scene work to develop the actor’s instrument and build technique. The scenes will be worked on in front of an acting instructor and a group of peers. The goal is to receive specific constructive feedback that helps the actor improve their craft and their abilities in specific roles.
All materials will be provided. Children under 12 are welcome to come observe with a parent or guardian.
