Thespians Thrive in the Adult Acting Class

Adults in acting class

Posted on January 26, 2018 by Matt Geske

AFYP’s Adult Acting Workshop returns this Spring! This workshop has helped students work towards a wide range of goals, from increasing confidence during work presentations to auditioning and being cast in community theater productions.

“Through individual and scene work, students learn to express themselves and a character in focused, objective-based acting technique,” said past instructor Rebecca Wahls.

Students will build and apply skills to monologues, scenes, and ensemble exercises, culminating in a sharing of work at the final class meeting.

Published playwright and theater director Lisa Nanni-Messegee joins GMU Theater Education Graduate student Ashley Promisel to teach the Spring session, which starts Tuesday, February 13th (7-9pm) and runs for 8 weeks.

“I am so proud of each and every one of us – we have come a long way together from our disparate backgrounds, and we have meshed together as a group,” said one of the Fall 2017 participants. “I am honored to have met each one of you and this experience I will cherish fondly always.”

Sharpen your acting/ audition skills, get practice acting with and performing in front of others, and enjoy the camaraderie that only theater can bring. Join our Adult Acting Workshop today!
