A class for professional actors seeking to discover the performer's part of a new-play process. In this Advanced Scene Study class, award-winning playwright/director Speser Davis (Goodman Theatre's 2020/21 Maggio Directing Fellow; Broken Nose Theatre) will provide you with scenes from contemporary - and in some cases, still-in-development - new works, ones that require sharp dialogue skills, rich personalization, and empathy for even the most easily stigmatized characters.  Over the course of five weeks, we will discuss how to navigate receiving last-minute changes to your characters' key scenes, while sharpening the tools you can utilize to stay steady and focused, even when the script itself is still in flux. Rehearsal outside of class is required.

Weeks 1 - 3: 6pm - 9pm
Weeks 4 - 5: 6pm - 9:45

REQUIRED: Strong theatre background and training, determined by headshot and resume, and self-tape audition. Please submit a 90-sec self-tape contemporary monologue for consideration.

Tuition: $350
