ACTING CHOICES II
Mondays, Six (6) classes September 16, 2019 through October 21, 2019
Beginning 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Instructor: Heather Sartin
Continuing the journey, Acting Choices II will build on the foundational concepts studied in the previous session of Acting Choices I. In ACII, Actors will look at their personal preparation and process in relation to script and scene work, vocal variety, facial/emotional connection, and the flinch test. Through exercises and discussion, we will continue to expose our Hidden Agendas as we clear the table of bad habits, make strong choices and push ourselves to avoid deflection and follow through with intentions. Hard work indeed but well worth the effort!
Because the foundational skills of ACI will continue to be discussed in relation to new skills, past participation in ACI is not a prerequisite. Actors of all levels and experience are welcome to join us! This second level of Acting Choices will be followed by ACIII and ACIV in Spring 2020.
THE KIRKWOOD COMMUNITY CENTER
111 S. GEYER ROAD
KIRKWOOD, MO 63122
Tuesdays, Six (6) classes September 17, 2019 through October 22, 2019
Beginning 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Instructor: Bob Thibaut
Objective: To understand and master the audition process, materials, and etiquette.
An audition is an unnatural situation. You walk into a room full of people that look just like you. They walk and talk like you too! You are all there for the same role and only one of you will book the part. Auditions are stressful and competitive. But they shouldn’t be! This course will focus on two things: (1) Preparation and (2) Mindset. These two things can turn that stress into joy and competitiveness into creative collaboration. You will explore why preparation and mindset can get your foot in the door and remind you what the audition process truly is… a chance to act! Topics included in the course:
- Choosing a monologue
- Cold readings
- Wardrobe choices
- Stage auditions vs. Film auditions
