To all you folks who’ve ever exclaimed “I can act better than that!” during a particularly bad movie or show, your opportunity to traverse the path to glory, to take your place among the stars, has finally arrived. What, you think you’re already ready for auditions? Give it your best shot, but don’t say I didn’t warn you! My recommendation? Try preparing with an Acting Fundamentals course, presented by Speaking of Stories.
Just imagine, on Mondays at 6 p.m. from June 3–July 29, under the tutelage of artistic director Maggie Mixsell, you could awaken and nurture that acting talent you’ve aways suspected you had! In all seriousness, the classes are geared toward aspiring actors of all ages and skill levels. Learn the many facets of acting craft, both monologue and scene work, including motivation, subtext, beats, blocking, stage business and given circumstances. Nervous because your memory isn’t great? Don’t worry, all classwork can either be memorized or read from a script!
The class culminates with a final performance at Center Stage Theater, so you’ll have the opportunity to really test your mettle in front of an audience! Class size is limited, so visit the Speaking of Stories website or call 805/963-0408 for more information.
