Scenes for Fun
Jan 26-Feb 16, 2021
New to acting or just want to try it out for fun? Then, this casual and supportive scene class is for you! Each week, you’ll work with a script and a scene partner on short pieces that will allow you to explore character, motivation, and tactics. The director Evan Johnson will help you find new ways of approaching a scene and discuss how they affect the outcome. In the end, you’ll learn how the individual choices actors make can shape their performances, and get an inside look at this process.
Dates: 1/26-2/16 (4 class sessions)
Day/Time: Tuesdays, 6:00-7:15 pm
Instructor: Evan Johnson
Location: Online via Zoom
Note: *This class is for ages 18+
