For those of you who are interested, we provide free acting workshops for adults—college-age and up. Offered at no cost, but if you have time to put up posters, count fliers, organize costumes 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 acting, auditioning, the rehearsal process, monologue preparation and whatever the student has questions about. Betsy Bisson is the Artistic/Education Director here and has 20 + years experience teaching acting.
You’re welcome to join the class mid-semester, but you will very likely only be able to observe and critique as scenes & monologues will have already been assigned —the bulk of the formal teaching occurs in the beginning of the semester, later classes mainly consist of rehearsing material and performing for class for critique. We DO have an informal performance at the end of the semester (voluntary participation—you can elect not to perform), and friends and family are welcome to attend. You are also welcome to just come and listen to lecture or participate in game/exercises and not perform, but the only way to learn to act is to actually go through the process (selecting material, doing the background character work, experimenting with physical and vocal characteristics, memorizing, developing intentions/obstacles, refining performance technique, receiving critiques, etc.)
We call it AA (cause no one can give you grief for going to an AA meeting) and it meets on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:15ish pm. The scheduling is dependent on building availability and the teacher’s schedule. This class is FREE. You don’t need to “register”–just come.
Class are held at SCCT NEW Temporary Headquarters – 1200 Pendleton St, Greenville
Fall 2017 schedule — class typically meets on Sundays, from 5-6:15pm
