A special 4-week scene study UP ON YOUR FEET with Stan Roth! Previous experience is required. Not appropriate for beginners.
6 seats remain.
"....a NYC-style kick in the butt class (this is a compliment - read on) that not only teaches you, but also challenges you to constantly evolve and change your approach. Really cool exercises with immediate on-camera results." B.G.

The focus is on two-person scenes derived from actual TV and film scripts that cover a range of styles and genres and are specifically tailored to the actors involved. Sides are emailed in advance, allowing actors adequate time to prepare, and roles are assigned not only because they are appropriate casting but also because they will stretch the actors in challenging directions. The classwork replicates the actual audition experience and is designed to address and solidify those specific skills that will consistently result in successful readings: expanding emotional range, engaging the actor’s imagination, learning solid, dependable technique. Following the initial readings, actors work with Stan on specifics: defining beats, making explicit character choices, playing precise objectives, believability, spontaneity, and improvisational skills.
Course of 4 classes. Tuesday March 5,12, 19, & 26. 7-10:30 pm. $280
