This is a mixed level acting class for adults. Many of the participants have taken previous acting classes at Arts Garage, but it is not a prerequisite. Some previous experience and general knowledge of theatre is helpful. In this session, I will work with each student at their own unique level to help them deepen their understanding and connection to their characters and their scripts. The session will culminate in a performance showcase of their class work.
