Through monologue and scene work, and sophisticated improvs and games, teen actors become acquainted with the actors toolbox. The range of playwrights is eclectic: Oscar Wilde, Neil Simon, Tracy Letts, William Inge, Shakespeare and others are explored.
*AUDITION WORKSHOP for Performing Arts High School Applicants (Fall only)
This class will not only prepare your child for the rigorous process of auditioning for the Performing Arts High schools, but help them to enjoy the adventure and do well. Your child will be prepared with two contrasting audition monologues that fit their specific personality. Sessions Include videotaping of audition pieces, cold reading practice and feedback from a noted professional casting director.
I structure the year-long session in three parts: fall, winter and spring.
Parents sign their child up for the fall session, and pre-register the child for the winter and spring sessions. I take new students for each session only if space permits. I keep my classes small by design—no more than ten students.
If the session has begun, and you wish your child to join a class, it’s possible if
we’re not full! Fees will be pro-rated.
Fall Session: Week of September 19 – Week of December 19
Winter Session: Week of January 2 - Week of March 20
Spring Session: Week of April 3 - Week of June 19
Discount: If you register for all 3 sessions at the beginning of the fall session, the fee will be reduced by 15%.
Scholarships are available for students in need who have a passion for acting and theater and whose parents can demonstrate need.
*Private Coaching By Appointment
For students preparing a last minute audition or rehearsing a role in a play, or for students who simply wish to deepen their skills, one on one coaching is very helpful. Contact me for rates and information.
*Acting Classes for Adults
Are you interested in learning what I teach but find yourself older than the age ranges specified? Let me know! I teach adults as well.
Would your child like to try out a class to see if it’s for them? For a $35 fee, they can audit a session, and will participate fully in the class.
