Taught by George Lewis
Thursdays 7p-11p April 27th to May 15th
Acting is a process that can be learned and practiced by anyone at any age.

No matter your experience, you will learn acting in an exciting and safe environment.

He has been teaching acting and movement across the U.S. and Canada since 1978, and currently teaches for the Dalcroye Society down at Cornish College for the Arts, and as core faculty at Freehold.
Step III: Basic Scene Study $410
Taught by Timothy Piggee and Jacqueline Moscou
Mondays 6p-10p April 10th to June 19th
Students learn to give a scene life through text analysis and improvisation. Students continue to broaden and deepen their understanding of rehearsal techniques and create enough rich work with their imaginations that they are compelled to act and react. In the spring quarter, special emphasis is placed on dramatic literature by African-American playwrights, and scene work will be particularly inclusive with roles for all ethnicities.

Acting for the Camera $395
Taught by Stefan Enriquez
Tuesdays 7p-10p April 11th to June 13th
This intensive course teaches actors awareness of the special needs of the camera and focuses on the actors' ability to be free in front of it. The objective is to teach actors the importance of technique, to liberate the unconscious imagination, to remove self-conscious behavior, and to use one's self to fill a character.

He has performed on numerous stages including the Seattle Repertory Theatre, A Contemporary Theatre, the Seattle Children's Theatre, and the Empty Space Theatre where he appeared in the West Coast Premiere of Someone Who'll Watch Over Me.
Playwriting III: Structure and Action $275
Taught by Amy Wheeler and Vincent Delany
Wednesdays 7p-10p April 19th to June 7th
A shipwright builds ships. A wainwright builds wagons. A playwright builds and shapes dramatic events. Using the language of the stage - words, sound, music, movement, light, rhythm, silence - we will explore different ways of constructing a theatrical world to house your play. Focus is on honing the craft of dramatic storytelling through action, structure and completing a draft. Come with some experience writing plays or a rough draft to revise. The instructors prefer that students enroll with a completed scenes or script.
