Our next semester will be Fall 2023–info will be on our website by late July, check back then and register – thank you! 

What we typically offer

For those of you who are interested, we provide free acting classes for adults—college-age and up.  Offered at no cost, but if you have time to put up posters, count fliers, usher for us, etc—just do those things as you can — We’ll send out emails announcing our need, and if you can help, please do.

It’s a chance for beginners to seasoned actors to get together to learn more about all things theatre related as well as a chance to work on material within an ensemble of like-minded, supportive students.  Betsy Bisson is the Education Director at SCCT and has 30 + years of experience teaching acting.

If you’re a new student, you will be required to come to an orientation before being admitted into the class. The orientation will give you an idea of how the class is structured, what will be covered (and what won’t), and what the expectations of the students are. People who would like to be considered for admission should email to attend an orientation once the date is listed. New students will be admitted for the semester pending that orientation. As the class is offered free-of-charge, only students willing to commit to fairly consistent attendance should sign-up for an orientation/possible slot in the class.

We call it AA (because no one can give you grief for going to an AA meeting) and it meets on Sunday evenings pending parking lot availability in the 4-8pm range. See anticipated schedule listed below.

** CHILD CARE IS NOT OFFERED DURING ADULT ACTING CLASSES and children may not sit in the building without adult supervision. **

Mandatory Orientation – Sunday, September Date TBD from 5-6:30pm in our Main Lobby (front of the building—look for the Box Office Door).

TO SIGN UP–WHEN ORIENTATION DATE IS ANNOUNCED – you will email your Name, Email address, Best Phone # and the reason you want to take the class. Any previous history in theatre/acting? Specific goals? At the actual Orientation please be prepared to share your favorite play/musical/movie you’ve seen and why/how it impacted you.

To be accepted into the class, you will be expected to understand and agree to our class expectations for attendance and participation and discuss and anticipated conflicts with the schedule listed below. It is NOT at all recommended to miss any of the first 4 class dates.

**Returning students (students who have completed at least one semester of the class and performed in a Sharing, or SCCT Studio or Intermediate level students who are now graduates and have already learned the foundational material) must email BEFORE the first class to let her know you plan to return for the semester and detail what your goals are, please also include the type of material you want to work on, if you already have a scene partner lined up, and if you have already found material you would like to work on (if so, please include a pdf of picture of the material).

CLASSES – Sundays pending parking lot availability due to MainStage
If you anticipate being absent, please secure someone in the class to take notes for you and make a plan to talk to them BEFORE the next class to get those notes.
