Using the abundance of knowledge and skills you’ve garnered in your ASC Online Level 1 & 2 courses, our ASC Online Level 3 course prepares you to delve into the world of the play! This course will teach you how to actively read, notate, and study the entirety of the play in order to cultivate a dynamic  “character arc”. In this course, emphasis will be placed on:

  • Memorization skills that further actor-to-text connection

  • Using costumes to help you get more in your body and explore specific character movements.

  • Using props to further ground you in space and encourage personalization.

  • Using the Guideposts to effectively incorporate what you learned from actively reading the entire play into your scene work.

Materials will be sourced from contemporary American playwrights such as John Patrick Shanley, David Mamet, Rebecca Gilman, and Tony Kushner.

Required: Prior experience and training, determined by headshot, resume, and self-tape submission for the instructor.

Students must have internet access, as well as a computer/cell phone/tablet with a working camera and microphone.

More about Sarafina



Her (Sarafina Vecchio — Level 3 Scene Study: Online) classes and exercises were so well structured. Her feedback was very valuable and insightful and helped me to learn and grow. I loved her humor and how she made class fun as well as informative.

— Camille Baxter

Sarafina (Vecchio — Level 3 Scene Study: Online) is the real-deal. Her approach was different in the best way possible. I took nuggets from her like I have with all my instructors so far, and it all works well!

— Justin Mobley

Sarafina Vecchio is such an amazing teacher and warm person. I took both Level 3: Scene Study Online and Beginning Monologue: Online with her and I felt every time motivated to do more and be more.

— Adriana Belan

I think Adrianne's(Cury-Level III Online) critiques were always specific and helped make the scene better. Even if I didn't understand the first few times what a critique meant, I was able to keep trying different things and I was reminded of the critique so that when it was successful, it was satisfying. I also really REALLY appreciated receiving written feedback on our scene breakdowns. I feel like it's a really great opportunity to see how your personal interpretation and understanding of a scene/character and the guideposts compares to the instructor's. I felt like that really helped my understanding of how the technique is applied which then informed how I did future scene breakdowns. I also felt like Adrianne really enjoyed teaching. She always came in with great energy even when we were nervous.
