September 10 – October 29, 2018 (8 weeks)

Cardinal Stage’s Administrative Office (900 S. Walnut Street)

Tuition – $250 per student

This eight-week course for adults allows for a deep dive into scene work from contemporary American plays.  You’ll learn techniques for character analysis, scene analysis, and how to make sure all that analysis shows up in your acting. You’ll leave with straightforward, accessible tools to improve your next time on stage, whether it’s for an audition, a callback, a rehearsal or a performance.

Registration is now open. Class is limited to 10 students, so sign up now!
