Acting on a regular, working basis is much more of a technical craft than some like to admit. The seed of becoming a repertory actor relies as much on technique as it  does talent and timing. This workshop will teach a process for producing a real character on the basis of technique without sacrificing believability. Learn to incorporate vocal interpretation, emotional memory, expression, and physical dexterity as you compose  a character. This workshop presents a method actually taught in repertory companies in England. Not only shall you learn the method but you will actually create a character during the course. This three session workshop will be taught by Rodger McDonald, An Elly Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and L.A. Dramalogue Best Actor recipient. Numbers for the workshop are limited…. but acting possibilities are not!
