Winter Acting Class for Adults
Wednesdays | 7:00 – 8:30PM | Jan. 17 – Mar. 14 (no class on 2/14) | Civic Theatre | $190 (includes materials)

This 8-week course is designed specifically for the new actor who wants to build self-confidence, learn how to analyze a script, develop a character, and work in a group setting to create a piece of live theatre. Amateur performers and others with little or no experience are welcomed into a nurturing environment where they can begin to grow and gradually understand the preparation that ultimately translates to performing for a live audience.
