Acting the Role is a GREAT FIT for you IF…
You want to be an exceptional actor who stands out from the crowd at auditions and who has a reputation for professional and exciting work!
Being an actor like this can help you:
• book more jobs, which leads to more $$$
• be seen by more agents and casting directors
• have your choice of projects
• save time by learning these skills now
• gain confidence onstage and off
• avoid frustration, stress, and confusion by not knowing what to do with these texts
Perfect for actors in the first decade of their career!
What would it mean to learn all of this NOW instead of years from now?
How do you want to spend this time—especially during a “shutdown” pandemic? Be leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else!
Even if you’re sitting in as an attendee, you can learn just as much from observing an acting class—and imagine what you’ll understand by watching professionals rehearse! This is a CRUCIAL workshop for you to witness – don’t miss your chance!
What actors are saying…
“It was so enlightening to working with Susan on Lady Macbeth. She opened up complexities to Lady M I hadn’t considered, and to the language in a hands-on and tangible way that can be accessed for anyone desiring to deepen and expand their connection with her character.”
Tara BoppNew York City
“This was revelatory. Previous to working with Susan, I’d only looked at Lady Macbeth through the lens of her blood thirsty ambition for status and power, and her subsequent inability to deal with the consequences. But that was a gross and cartoonish characterization; now I see the woman in all her dimensions.”
Jeff LeBeauLos Angeles
Lady Macbeth is one of the most revered and feared female characters in Shakespeare’s canon.
She often gets a bad name, or is summarized as purely seductive or evil. But like all Shakespeare’s female characters, she is multi-dimensional: passionate, complex, intelligent, full of boldness as well as fragility. She has hopes, dreams, fears and losses.
She is ultimately incredibly human. A careful examination of the text certainly provides some answers, but because of the play’s brilliance, it also opens up question after question that set the actor on a fascinating journey of discovery.
What you’ll cover with Susan:
Session #1: Historical Context
The origins of Macbeth: source material, elements of the supernatural, and 11th century Scotland
Session #2: The Marriage
The relationship of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth: the hopes, the dreams, the history.
Session #3: Sleep & Madness
The demise of Lady Macbeth: how her mind is shaped by his, and his by hers, and when they veer away from one another.
And remember: you’re not just learning theory—this all comes from someone who’s been there and done the work. Night after night.

You may be asking…
Why does this cost more than a usual acting class? +
You’re receiving much more individual attention and focus than you would in a normal class; there’s no waiting your turn to act—you’re always in the scene!
Plus, instead of watching other actors do scenes for the majority of class time, the instructor is spending more time in discussion and teaching, sharing valuable and real-world lessons learned from actually playing the role professionally.
Can I sign up as an actor if I’ve never done Shakespeare before? +
Absolutely! No time like the present to begin, and you’ll have some wonderfully supportive and skilled individuals to start you off!
How does the Unlimited ticket work? +
You will receive access to a list of all the sessions so that you can “drop in” as you like. Be sure to leave your camera off and your mic on “mute” so that you can just be a silent fly on the wall!
I’m a union/non-union actor. Can I participate? +
Yes! As you are “being yourself” and are not cast in a role, there are no union requirements or paperwork. We’ve spoken with SAG-AFTRA reps in both the Education and New Media departments.
Will anything be recorded? +
YES! We plan to offer limited replays (7 days) for all the rehearsals. Of course, everything will happen LIVE so to get the most out of this series, show up for as much as you can!
What if my question hasn’t been answered? +
Send us an email at workshop AT workingactorsjourney.com and we’ll get back to you!
PS: Don’t miss out on becoming a GREAT actor that people take notice of! Increase your skills, confidence, and network while working at a PROFESSIONAL level!
