Seeking Teenage boys to join the Tuesday Teen Acting Class.
Classes are up and running, and we’re off to a great start with two classes on Tuesdays, two on Mondays and the Friday session set to begin this coming Friday. Things look good for a Saturday class as well. Stay tuned!
I’m writing to ask you to spread the word: I would love to find that rare commodity, the courageous teenage boy who would like to join a wonderful, exuberant group of teens that meet on Tuesdays. See below for information, and many thanks for your kind referrals.
TEEN ACTORS WORKOUT
Tuesdays, January 10-April 3, 6-7:30 p.m. (no class February 21)
Through monologue and scene work, and sophisticated improvs and games, teen actors become acquainted with the actor’s toolbox. The range of playwrights is eclectic: Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, Neil Simon, Tracy Letts, William Inge and others are explored.
*PRIVATE COACHING BY APPOINTMENT
For students preparing a last minute audition or rehearsing a role in a play, or for students who simply wish to deepen their skills, one on one coaching is very helpful. Contact me for rates and information.
*ACTING CLASSES FOR ADULTS
Are you interested in learning what I teach but find yourself older than the age ranges specified? Let me know! I teach adults as well.
See our website for information on discounts to students who register for the year-long course of study. Also: scholarships are available for students in need who have a passion for acting and theater.
Young Actors Workshop classes are located in the heart of Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill. We hold classes in the studios at Christ Church (corner of Clinton and Kane Streets). The Church is a center for community activities, housing the Linden Tree Pre-School, Cobble Hill Ballet and other organizations. It’s a five minute walk from the F and G Bergen Street stop and ten minutes from the 2,3, 4, 5 and R trains at Borough Hall.
At our website are registration forms. Please fill one out and return it to me by email or fax. Or give a ring (718-624-4604, phone and fax). Don’t hesitate to ask questions! I’m always happy to talk and tell you more about the classes.
