The Paper Mill Playhouse’s Theatre School will offer a new Senior Players Acting Workshop beginning Monday, September 10. The Workshop, which will be emphasizing creation of one person plays, will be offered from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon for 20 weeks at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn under the guidance of stage, television and movie veteran Ed Schiff.
Mr. Schiff is a show business veteran with over 200 professional credits in film, television and movies as an actor, director, playwright and producer. He has also taught acting, directing and theater history in conservatories and universities, most recently as the Resident Professional Theatre Associate at Cornell and as the Distinguished Artist at Bergen Community College.
The Workshop is designed for actors 55 years of age and up. It will provide participants a chance to work through basic acting exercises and evolve into one person plays through positive guidance from Mr. Schiff.
“The ‘reality of doing’ is one of the basic tenets of truthful acting and the participants in the Senior Players Workshop will find great fun and stimulus in the 20 weeks of ‘doing’ stage presentations,” said Mr. Schiff.
Enrollment is limited, so prospective students are urged to reserve space as soon as possible. To register and for information, call Ms. Mickey McNany at (973) 379 3636, extension 1669. The cost for the 20-week session is $285.
