Do your auditions show what you are capable of as an actor? If you have any kind of difficulty auditioning, you can transform your auditions into an adventurous and creative process-and that is how you will be at your best in the audition room. The monologue is the actor's business card. An actor needs to show in an audition that he is both an artist and a showman, a creative spirit and a professional. The techniques I teach feature all of these qualities.
Classes will be run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. both Sundays and the fee is $125.00.

LEVEL 2 ACTING CLASS INCLUDES:
Study in an environment that is both positive and rigorous. It is assumed that anyone who takes the class is serious about improving their craft and maximizing their potential to win auditions and land roles. With a background as both an award-winning actor and professional director, I am able to structure the class to include not only the internal process of creating a role, but to give the students an insider's understanding of what a director is really looking for when casting a play.
Each week, we link intensive training forms and technique exercises with detailed work on contemporary and classical scenes and monologues. We place a special emphasis on practical application of actor training: rehearsal technique in real-life situations, working alone and with others, text analysis, given circumstances, actions and objectives, physical and vocal choices to create character, problem-solving, reading, and sensory skills. We equip each actor with vocabulary, tools, and skills to approach any acting task on stage or on film with honesty, clarity, depth, and confidence.
