The 21st Century Performer – Acting, Writing & Filmmaking Intensive

October 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

$232.50 – $465

Have you ever wondered how your favorite actors go seamlessly from a Hollywood movie to the Broadway stage? Each week, participants will apply their knowledge to transforming real-life, lived experiences into theatrical performances; working on classical and contemporary monologues; and writing, directing, and producing their own short films using only their smartphones and their imaginations!

The class will culminate in a live/virtual performance for a public audience.
