Weekend Classes

The Actors' Studio: Scene Study

In our Actors' Studio series, serious acting students will move deeper into developing their craft. Scene Study, students will learn how to unpack the “given circumstances” of a scene and work collaboratively with a scene partner to convey the heart of a piece. In the final class, students will share what they’ve learned with friends and family. We recommend students take this class if they’ve taken Actor’s Toolbox: Fundamentals of Acting or have previous experience. A final demonstration for family and friends will take place on the last day of class.
