These sessions are always filled with amazing scene work, and you’ll learn:
- how professional artists approach material
- what questions to ask
- what the director expects from actors
- how to find character clues from the text
- how the exploration never stops!
The great joy of these programs is that we get to:
- spend SO much time diving deep on a scene and characters
- bring together lifelong professionals with newer/younger actors
- cast roles while being totally open to race, gender, and age
