These classes will be relaxing and fun experiences in a safe and friendly environment that can prepare the non-actor for acting on the “community theatre” level. They will introduce you to the skills that take you from a seat in the audience to a spot on the stage . And even if you don’t actually want to “tread the boards” onstage, in these classes you will have an intriguing — and perhaps inviting — look “behind the scenes” at how a play’s script becomes a production.
Join us for these five sessions, all taught by experienced actors with years of community and professional theatre experience. Let them share their skills and experiences with you . . . and perhaps enlighten and draw you into the world of theatre.
