3  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Classes & Workshops / SEATTLE ACTORS WORKSHOP: THE ART OF THE AUDITION on: September 24, 2015, 02:07:59 PM
Seattle Actors Workshop announces the Fall Session of its popular class The Art of the Audition, with Margaret Layne and Victor Pappas!

Maybe that monologue you used to shrug into like an old sweater doesn’t seem to fit as comfortably as it did -  a little tight across the shoulders?  Buttons not doing up properly?  Or maybe that speech you used to love just doesn’t fire you up the way it used to?  If you’re not getting the results you want from your general auditions (i.e. callbacks!), it could be time to find something new and fabulous that suits the actor you are today! This could be just the class you need to perk up your presentation and make your auditions richer, more impactful, and more truthfully representative of who you are as an actor.

This six-week long class is geared towards working actors interested in developing or improving their audition and monologue skills. Participants will learn to explore the monologue with the same depth of detail used in creating a character for a full-length production, and everyone will finish the class with three monologues ready to use for audition purposes. Monologues will be personally chosen by the instructors to speak to participants’ skills and quality of presence, while also stretching them to enhance the variety and versatility they can show within a trio of pieces.

Details are as follows:
6 meetings:  10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/9, 11/16, 11/23 (Note: No Class on 11/2)
Monday evenings 6 pm – 9 pm, Private studio on Queen Anne
Space is limited to 8 participants, admission by interview
Interviews on Tuesday, September 29, 4-7pm at ACT Theatre
Price:   $475. Amount to be paid in full prior to the first day of class to ensure your place. (Payment plans available, please contact class administrator Jessica Martin for more information.)
To request an interview, please email: actbridgingthegap@gmail.com.

He has taught at the American Conservatory Theatre, PCPA/Theaterfest, and the Professional Actors Conservatory of Rancho Santiago College, and most recently spent ten years as Associate Chair of NYU's prestigious Graduate Acting Program.

6  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Classes & Workshops / Seattle Actors Workshop: The Actor's Toolbox One-Day Intensives on: June 09, 2014, 03:50:03 PM
All actors are expected to have certain skills in their toolboxes at the ready. But how and where do you learn them?

Seattle Actors Workshop (SAW) has put together a trio of one-day intensive classes aimed to help the professional working actor develop or polish those skills they may be called upon to use in rehearsal or on stage.
Expert teachers will instruct on dialects, stage make-up, and basic ballroom dances.

Classes may be taken separately, or as a complete series. Students who register for all three classes will receive a $50 discount!

For more information about Seattle Actors Workshop, visit our Facebook Group pages or our website:  http://seattleactorsworkshop.blogspot.com/

Dialects with Gin Hammond
June 23rd Bullitt Cabaret at ACT Theatre, 10am-5pm
$100, 8 students max


In the United States, three of the most commonly requested dialects for stage, film, and voice-over are Standard British (RP), Cockney, and a modern blend of the two, called Estuary. For a variety of reasons, the accuracy with which modern actors are expected to deliver these dialects is on the increase. In this workshop, you will learn a fun, organic, and relatively easy approach to these sounds so that it does not get in the way of your brilliant acting, and in fact, allows you to confidently enhance your performance or audition.

The Art of Stage Makeup with Allen Fitzpatrick
June 30th at ACT, 11am- 5:30pm
$100 and $20 kit fee, 8 students max


Learn to be a master of disguise! Or at least a master of foundation. In this lecture & demonstration workshop, actor Allen Fitzpatrick will cover the basic techniques of stage makeup. The lecture will be followed by an extended session of individual work with students to create a variety of makeups, both their own basic look for the stage and then exploring additional techniques. Topics to be covered may include: Eyes / Foundation & Base / Blush + Lipstick / Contouring / Lighting & Distance effects on makeup / Age makeup / Prosthetics / Skin care & safety / Special Effects + Injuries Makeup. Hairpiece application will be addressed if time permits.  Purchase of a Ben Nye kit is not required, however, students will be expected to have a kit to participate in class.

Basic Partner Dance with Kathryn Van Meter
July 7th in the Lalie at ACT Theatre, 11am-5pm
$100, 20 students max


Do you miss your body? Or maybe you’re not sure you’ve ever met- Did you learn once how to waltz but have forgotten? Do you wish you knew you to stretch that part that hurts sometimes? Maybe you want to know some terms- pas de bourree, shuffle hop step, chasse? Maybe you wish you could just be a little less terrified if the word “dance” came up in the same conversation as “job offer.” Or maybe you just want to learn some new things- move about the cabin- sweat a little-laugh, definitely laugh and breathe and laugh some more, and feel a little sore the next day- not the debilitating kind but the kind that says- “Well, hello muscles! There you are! I didn’t know you could do that!”

Hi all -

I am trying to track down a young African-American actor we saw at the UGAs last year named Earley Dean.  Neither the e-mail nor the phone number on the resume I have from that audition is current (the phone seems to have been a cell number belonging to a friend, who says he hasn't heard from Earley in a while).  I have something coming up I'd love to see him for if he's still around - has anyone been in touch with him or had him in for an audition?  If so, would you give me a call at ACT and let me know how you contacted him?

Thanks!

Margaret

Participants should come prepared for the possibility that they will be chosen to present: dress as you would for an audition, and make sure that your music is cleanly copied, clearly marked with any cuts or repeats etc, and organized in an easily manageable format for the accompanist.

To request a place, please contact ACT Casting Director Margaret Layne by phone at 206/292 7660 ext 1226, or by email at:  laynem@acttheatre.org   We will need your name, address, phone and email contact info, vocal part, and the song you’ll be presenting if you are selected as one of the “working” students. 

You will receive confirmation that a place is held for you.
