Adult Acting Workshop (Ages 14-Adult)

Adult Acting Workshop in The Quiet Way will help any actor rediscover the fundamentals of our craft while remembering why we love to do plays. This remarkable method joins improvisation and stage direction to free the actor’s natural creativity and desire to use body and voice to tell a story live and in person. By breaking down the elements of “script” and laying them bare to exploration and improvisation, The Quiet Way will remind you of exactly why you fell in love with acting in the first place—or help you fall in love with it for the very first time!
