Scene Study-A Physical Approach, ages 13-19.  Teacher:  Jessica Callahan Gelter.  Be a proactive actor.  Learn how to approach a script, make acting choices and develop characters with your body.  You won't need to ask “what should I do now?”  You will have the tools to self-direct.  This is the Stanislavski approach to theater, with a special twist—instead of doing book work at a table to figure out who your character is and what he/she wants, you will explore ways to discover these things with your body.  We will be tackling scenes and monologues from contemporary American theater.  NOTE-Four week intensive class beginning January 8.  Wed & Thurs 4:30-6:00 pm.  Tuition $160.
