At no extra charge, each of our voice-over teen superstars will make an appointment to record his/her voice-over demo and have it fully produced at I Am Sound & Video Studios (a savings of $350 - $400, the current price of a voice-over demo)!

Our TEEN VOICE-OVER CAMP has been specially designed to showcase your unique teen voice, personality and individual style. You’ll spend lots of time recording in the studio, learning special microphone techniques, how to read voice-over commercials and bring them to life, tips and tricks for developing character voices, and even how to get agents and voice-over jobs!  Class size is very limited.  Call or email us, or visit our website to register.

So teens, join us at the end of August for this fantastic TEEN VOICE-OVER CAMP. What an awesome way to end the summer!

Active Acting Seminar Taught by Charles Waxberg at Eclectic Theater

For Immediate Release                     08/04/15


"Your talent lies in your choices."  --Stella Adler

WHAT: Eclectic Theater is excited to host acclaimed acting coach Charles Waxberg in a dynamic and active workshop using the accessible, method-busting script-analysis  techniques of Stella Adler.  Previously offered exclusively to Theatre9/12 company members, the seminar will consist of practical exercises and short scene work designed to merge the analytical side of script work with the limitless imagination of the individual performer. Based on The Actor’s Script—Script Analysis for Performers (written by Waxberg) participants will fortify their understanding of:
Given Circumstances
Dramatic Conflict
Largest Themes/Ruling Ideas that make entertaining performance into great theatre.
Students can participate fully in the workshop for $240, or audit and observe the process for $80. To register, please contact Rik Deskin at

WHO:  Charles Waxberg is a former student and close artistic associate of Stella Adler, having taught at both her New York and Los Angeles schools as well as internationally celebrated Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. He is the artistic director of Theatre9/12 in Seattle.

WHERE: Eclectic Theater, 1214 10th Ave, Seattle, WA  98122

WHEN: Saturdays beginning August 29 (from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm) for 8 weeks, culminating on October 24 (no class Saturday September 5)

WHY: The strongest choices are those that collaborate closest with the script.  A playwright consciously and unconsciously suggests strong choices and offers clues to characterization, dramatic tension, and the greatest themes of the play or film. The actor’s job is to translate these clues into playable actions, observable characters, and  theatrical conflict. This course will instruct participants to do just that, and fills a void with respect to Adler’s teachings.
