Acting in a Professional Production
“I very much enjoyed this course, benefitted from it, and learned a lot. The professionals that came in to work with us were uniformly talented, thoughtful, kind, and supportive.”
Prepare, rehearse, and perform in a series of staged readings on the stage of the Washington Stage Guild, one of DC’s most respected theatrical venues, working with professional directors and actors as part of a core company of students playing substantial roles. 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. This session focuses on modern interpretations of the drama and mythology of the Greeks, by such playwrights as Mary Zimmerman, Charles Mee, Jason Grote, and Ellen McGlaughlin. Many roles for all types. Many roles for all types.
