Scene Study focuses on the acting and analysis of theatrical scenes both contemporary and classical, emphasizing every element of an actor's craft - developing concentration, overcoming fear and self-consciousness, exercising voice and body, unlocking emotional availability, drawing upon personal experience, and most importantly, learning to use one's imagination - all in order to bring a character to life.

The class will emphasize developing skills for cold reading, improvisation, listening and responding, memorization, stage awareness, and isolating a character's objectives and obstacles. The class ends with a final invited showcase (date and time TBD).
