Prepare, rehearse, and perform in a series of staged readings at Theater J, one of DC's most respected theatrical venues. Issues explored in the class include the expectations involved in professional work, how to make strong acting choices within a compressed schedule, and the specific demands of staged readings versus full productions. Work with professional directors and actors as part of a core company of students playing substantial roles. This session will focus on some of the wildest theatrical works of the 20th century:
The Visit, by Friedrich Dürrenmatt
Six Characters in Search of an Author, by Luigi Pirandello
The Balcony, by Jean Genet
and a selection of short plays by Eugene Ionesco
Readings will be performed at both Theater J and The Theatre Lab. Many roles for all types.

If you've ever seen a corporate training video (think of the pre-flight instructions you see on passenger planes) then you've seen an industrial film. You may not know the actors' names, but they're making a living with their talent. In this class students will learn to apply the same tools one brings to a three-act play to a 30-second commercial or a three-minute instructional video. Students will go through the process of cold-reading scripts for auditions as well as shooting their performances and reviewing them on TV afterwards. The goal of this class is to get students proficient at the types of material that provide a substantial amount of the paid acting work in the DC-Baltimore market.
