Stella Adler said, “Growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.” Enrich your humanity while you strengthen your instrument in this brand new scene study course with Education Director Tracie Lane Thomason. Actors will analyze circumstances, exercise their imaginations, and play actions as they explore scenes in a safe and supportive environment. Whether you’re seeking a strong foundation or looking to challenge yourself with contemporary material, this course is for you. All experience levels are welcome.
