JUMP TO PROFESSIONAL ACTING WORKSHOP

This course will help bridge the gap between school instruction or community stage experience and the professional study of acting. The class will participate in learning, analyzing, and improving acting skills through the memorization and study of two audition pieces of the actor’s choosing. Stage Presence, Vocal Interpretation, Physical and Emotional Expression, and Character Development will all improve as each actor learns how to perfect his or her skills in a professional manner and as auditioning and character ability are heightened.  A segment on Cold Reading will also be presented as part of the course of instruction. Whether one will become a professional or continue in whatever level of theater one chooses, this workshop will enhance acting opportunities in the future.
