Theatre Battery in Kent, WA is seeking Puget Sound area actors to join a new scene study lab running weekends in July and August at Kent Station. The goal is to provide an accessible space in Kent for actors to conduct targeted character and scene exploration, with feedback provided by colleagues and guests.

Scenes will be drawn from plays and television, assignments given prior to the course in consultation with each actor. Over the three week workshop, actors grouped into pairs will work in front of the class once each weekend and have the option to book time in the space for private work or tutorials. Each session will consist of a short group exercise or warmup, three scenes worked for an hour each, and a closing discussion about craft topics that emerged in the scene study.

The Lab will be moderated by Logan Ellis (Theatre Battery Artistic Director, Yale MFA Director) and Joshua Hamilton (University of Florida MFA Actor), with guest teaching artists joining each weekend in a master class format.

Participation is free, with 12 applicants being admitted to act in the lab. The selected class will come from a diverse range of backgrounds, identities, and experience levels; all interested actors are encouraged to apply, or email to inquire further. Both students and professional actors will be represented in the lab. It is ideal that applicants are available to attend all six lab sessions. All sessions will be open to outside observers and the public.

To apply, email theatrebattery@gmail.com with a headshot and resume, as well as a statement of your goals for using the resources and community of the workshop in your development.
