A practical course for actors, directors and/or playwrights with any level of experience (including no experience)—and for people with curiosity about how theater works. This is an acting/directing class—and an incubator for productions that can blossom and take on a life (or start a company) of their own.
Students will • determine their own areas of exploration • work on scenes and monologues from original material, contemporary plays, Shakespeare, poetry, and/or classics • explore the power and meaning of language • explore the variety and nature of perceptions • explore spatial relationships • look at stagecraft • look at what makes a moment funny • put their discoveries to the test (if they like) by producing plays Two-tier participation: for students who participate either solo or as part of a team, and for observers who audit the class. Tuesdays, Oct. 5 - Nov. 6,6:00 - 8:30 pm Cost is

Shakespeare’s language belongs to all of us. This is a free-wheeling class that explores scenes and monologues in order to get good at playing what playwright William Gibson called “Shakespeare’s Game.” In time, we might form an ensemble to perform the plays! Two-tier participation for students who participate either solo or as part of a team, and for observers who audit the class.
Tuesdays, 6:00-8:30 pm, Nov. 9- Dec. 14
