Workshops available

July 14, 2010

“Where I Begin” Director, Thomas Phillips, has agreed to lead two workshops for Yac at the Powerhouse this month for “anyone that has a strong desire to better their skill set when it comes to performing.” If you are just starting out or a seasoned veteran, there will be something for everyone in his classes. Thomas also adds that any child or adult who takes his class has the option of being cast as an extra in his new film.

The children’s acting workshop is for ages 8-17 and will work with actors on performing in front of the camera, audition technique and cold readings. Preparation is a key factor in performing and students will have a strong concentration on what it means to break down a scene, discover them in it and bring it to life. The class is 5 straight days of intensive yet fun classes, culminating with monologue performances on Friday that will be recorded and delivered to the students on DVD. Students are asked to bring a 1 – 3 minute monologue for the first day of class- which will be honed, crafted and molded into what it should be during the week. Thomas’s Child Acting Class is $85.00 on July 26-30 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 at the Powerhouse.

The Adult Acting Intensive Workshop, a one day course from 1:00 p.m. – 7:00, is designed for people who really want to hone their craft. Phillips wants the actors to create and explore character work, while allowing the actor to delve deeply into challenging material in a safe environment. In this one-day course actors will cover everything from auditions to cold reads, to material and scene breakdowns. Learn how to give all you have in order to bring your character to life. Actors are asked to have a 1 – 3 minute monologue ready to perform to help show the instructor what you are bringing to the table. Thomas’s Adult Acting Intensive Workshop is $100.00 and will be Saturday, July 23 from 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 at the Powerhouse.
