"Jeffrey Weissman's excellent instructional technique, focus, and keen observation of each individual's particular acting skills are a few of the many reasons I choose to work with him again and again." Rick M.

Class will also cover technique for cold reading, working monologues, using improvisation (with and without a script), character development, scene study and the business of acting, focusing on marketing, negotiations, on set protocols, photo/resumes and cover letters.
