  • 14-week winter-spring session begins Thursday, Noon, February 6th

  • $660. total or 3 monthly installments of $220.

Individual programs are designed to help participants either expand their acting range or deepen their emotional life. During the session, actors break through habits, propensities, and limitations in order to achieve maximum range, freedom, depth, and power. Actors may choose to increase vocal or physical facility, overcome specific emotional or instrument weaknesses, or solidify craft elements in a supportive environment.

Individual interviews take place prior to the start of the class to mutually determine the needs, goals, and programs for each actor during the term. The programs will center on either expanding the acting range or deepening the intensity and capacity of emotional commitment. Then follow-up assignments including improvisations, explorations, scenes, and monologues will be specially tailored to the needs of each actor.

The chosen program will lead to a freer physical and vocal life, solidify aspects of craft, and develop a wider and deeper dramatic (and comic!) range.

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to complete the entire session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.

We are all so fortunate to have you turn your light on us, sweep us up into your beam, and inspire and help us in all the ways that you do. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”
