ACTORS WORKSHOP




Code: F20-266
Price: $250.00

Instructor: Michael Lehman
Day/Time: TUES, 6:00-9:00PM
Start Date: SEPTEMBER 10, 2019.
Fees: $250.00
Number of Class Meetings: 8 Sessions

Course Description:

ACTORS WORKSHOP:

 

The mission of this class is to awaken the imagination, emotion, and intellect of the student actor by making him/her aware of the transforming power and universality of theatre and the skills required to achieve excellence in performance. It is the beginning of the actor’s journey of exploration to uncover the meaning and vision of any play and playwright in order to discover the “who, why, where, when and how” of each character to best serve the vision of the play. It is imperative the student actor understands the craft of acting, which requires a disciplined approach to voice, speech, movement, as well as an intellectual rigor in dissecting text, subtext, and style. Finally, this course will stress both the actor's ability to use "self" (body, mind, and experience) in a believable, honest way, as well as his/her willingness and resilience to transform that "self" beyond its pre-established boundaries.

 Instructor: Michael Lehman is an award winning actor, screenwriter, playwright and local professor for five years. His awards include being a two-time Boston Globe Theatre award winner and five time National Broadcasting Society award winner.
