THE ACTOR SPACE: Adult Acting Technique Class

ADULT ACTING TECHNIQUE CLASS with Julia Kiley for Ages 18 & Up

8 Week Class – Sept 10-Oct 29 at Seven Angels Theatre
Tuesdays – 6:30-8:30pm
Tuition: $160

There is nothing more exciting for the actor than inhabiting a character and bringing them to life onstage – of being truly in the moment with a scene partner. This eight-week course will focus on the essential tools an actor uses in creating a believable reality in order to truly “live” within a playwright’s world. Classes will include exercises in concentration, sensory work, place, intention, actions/obstacles, and improv. This course will be geared to enhance the skills of the experienced actor as well as to guide the newcomer in building a strong and effective acting technique.
