Approaching scripted material can feel intimidating, restrictive, and simply overwhelming (especially for actors used to improvising their lines). This two-day workshop offers actors and performers essential tools for working with scripted sides and scenes, including: breaking down a scene, character development, physical action and staging, and being present each and every time the scene is repeated.

The workshop focuses on keeping choices specific and clear to find structure and stability in the scene, so the instincts and impulses of the individual actor help shape character and content throughout the process- from first read to final performance. Students will work on scenes from contemporary plays and/or film and television scripts to examine and enhance their existing process and apply new tools and perspectives to their work. With a little skill comes a lot of freedom: to explore deeply, to be fully engaged, to take risks and enjoy the reward.

Class runs each day from 10AM - 4PM. Each day there will be a lunch break from 12 - 1 PM.

When you have registered for this class, please send
