August Schedule with Workshop Themes

Mon./Tues. Aug. 1/2 A New Hope:
...We're doing big scenes from big movies that deal with mankind's higher aspirations. Love, honor, compassion and service to mankind are the order of the day in these kinds of films. Ben Hur, To Kill a Mockingbird, Blind Side, Star Wars, ET, and all those Christmas movies.

Mon./Tues. Aug. 8/9 Comedy with Blocking and Props:
...short comic scenes and monologues with movement and handling props. Learn how to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time!

Mon./Tues. Aug. 15/16 Suspense Thrillers:
...these kinds of movies are especially challenging for actors because you have to react to unusual circumstances as you play life and death moments. Your character often has hidden objectives and complicating sub text. And you never know… who is the psycho killer!

Mon./Tues. Aug. 22/23 Interrogations:
...each actor will get a “driver” scene (cop , detective, attorney, judge, etc.) where you initiate and propel the action and also a “reactor” scene (as a suspect, witness etc.) where you have to block, resist and affirm your innocence. A vigorous acting workout.

Mon./Tues. Aug. 29/30 Send in the Clowns:
...get down and get stupid with these comic characters from some of our best comedy classics like Superbad, The Big Lebowski, and The Producers
