More Information

Working collaboratively with scene partners in front of the instructor and a group of peers, Scene Study is a great way for actors to continually hone their craft without the timeline and pressure of a performance. The goal is to keep active & receive specific, constructive feedback to help each actor expand their toolbox and gain deeper insights into their journey and process as an actor. This Scene Study class is intended for actors who have already had some training and/or stage experience and is not intended for beginning actors.


Class times:

Sunday evenings 4/21/24-6/2/24

no class on 5/12/24
