Building The Living Environment – Friday, June 16th

Date: Friday, June 16th | Times: 6:30-9:30pm | Investment: $195 | Capacity: 12 | Ages: 10+

WHERE AM I? is one of the most import questions an actor must ask before approaching a role. Can you answer: How is the place (environment) affecting what I want and how I’m going to get it? Is it miserably hot or cold outside and is the crazy weather affecting my speech or the urgency by which I am fighting for what I want? Am I locked in an elevator and have to go to the bathroom! How can the environment around my character and my use of the 4th wall ground my performance in reality so that no one knows I’m acting?! Are you ready to take your acting to the next level? Find out how playing the environment can help you get there!

THIS COURSE IS NOT APART OF THE SATURDAY PACK, BUT IT’S OWN SEPARATE, VALUABLE TRAINING CLASS.
