THE SCRIPT – A Beginning Technique Class Wednesdays at 2pm

April 4 - June 14, 2018


THE SCRIPT is an 11-week technique class that emphasizes the role of the text in an actors’ performance. The words on the page are the basic inspiration for most performances and all actors must understand how to read a script, break down a script and bring a script to life. This class will give you exercises and techniques that will help you make character choices, play the action of the scene and relate emotionally to the given circumstances. Focus is placed on making strong choices that keep you engaged with your scene partner as well as using the language of the playwright to tell your character’s story.

The summer intensive is a tremendous opportunity to experience the beginning steps of Meisner based training in a professional environment. It’s purpose it to give student actors an exposure to the philosophies as well as the structure of this demanding yet dynamic process. Meisner’s step-by-step approach gets actors to work truthfully from their impulses, from their talent, not from their intellect.

These beginning steps lay the foundation for an actor’s ability to be truthful, brave and imaginative in his work. Each exercise builds upon the previous exercise and in this way the actor develops a dependable process to their acting. They learn how to “live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

Interviews for the 2018 Summer Intensive are ongoing. There is no deadline, however, once classes are full we will continue to hold interviews for a wait list. The earlier you interview, the more likely there will be availability for a spot in a class.
