Now Enrolling: ‘The Script’ Scene Study Acting Class

Vanessa studyingWhether you’re just beginning or are an experienced actor, it all starts with the script. If bringing the words to life is what makes us actors, learning to convey subtext, nuance and genuine emotion is can make us great actors.

The Script is an 11 week scene study class offered at EMASLA that emphasizes the role of text in an actor’s performance. Techniques are offered that help the actor make character choices, play objectives, and relate emotionally to world created by the scene.  Furthermore,  actors are taught to understand the voice of the writer in different genres and styles, allowing them to better connect with the intentions and vision of the writer as they express their own emotions through the words of others.

Both beginning and experienced actors who wish to improve their text analysis and script reading are encouraged to apply.

All EMASLA class sizes are limited in size to ensure one-on-one interaction with instructors. Visit our registration page to reserve your place one of our two time slots for The Script.

Get ready for Pilot Season!

We are currently auditioning actors for our Advanced Scene Study program.
CLASS INCLUDES
Extensive performance experience with traditional rehearsal format
Audition technique for Film, Television and Stage
Maintenance/refreshing of current skill set
Opportunities to perform for industry guests
This is a weekly workout where actors test their performance abilities in a safe but challenging environment. Through working on scenes of various genres, the actors discover their strengths and weaknesses with the help of a trained director’s eye. Because class size is restricted to 12 actors, each actor works in every class. We also realize that THE busiest audition season is fast approaching – we want our actors to be completely ready for pilot season, and help them fine tune their audition skills with simulated audition sessions.

This is not a beginning acting class. It requires that the student already have a number of tools in their acting belt. We require that a student applying for this class have prior training or performance experience. It is a mixed levels class of intermediate to advanced students. To maintain the integrity of the class -an audition is required.
