Adult Core Program

LEVEL 3 SCENE STUDY

 


Now you’re ready to dive into the world of the play! During the first six weeks of class, you will work on two scenes with a partner. By reading the entire script, memorizing, rehearsing, and working with props and costumes, you will deepen your understanding of specificity and personalization--essentials for any actor. 

Materials will be sourced from contemporary playwrights such as Dominique Morisseau, John Patrick Shanley, Rebecca Gilman, Rajiv Joseph, Tony Kushner, and Lynn Nottage.

Required: Levels 1 and 2 or equivalent training or a placement audition. 

You must be willing to rehearse in-person with your scene partner at least once a week.

In the event of inclement winter weather, your class will move to Zoom. ASC staff will make the decision by 3 pm the day of class and send you a Zoom link via email and text.

Tuition: $425

Sarafina (Vecchio) challenged us to really push our creativity and experiment with our choices in Level 3. She created a space where mistakes were opportunities for growth. I grew so much as a performer.
 

— Mike Cahill

I appreciated Sarafina (Vecchio's) thoughtful reviews after our scene practices. Her considerations were helpful -- allowing me to use her suggestion, yet still make my own choices during my rehearsals with my scene partner. (Level 3 Scene Study)
 

— Melanie Hubbard

Sarafina Vecchio was amazing in this course (Level 3)! She managed her time so well, and would set a timer for every scene to ensure we all had an equal amount of time. I really appreciated that and wish more teachers would do that. She also didn’t overload us with too many comments, instead just gave us a few concrete things to work on each week. Overall a lovely and fun instructor and I would love to take more classes with her!

The Level 3 Scene Study Class instructed by Christy Arington was exceptional in providing opportunities to expand the actors' level of character analysis. Ms. Arington is a pure joy and is astute in providing challenging opportunities to expand one's knowledge base while providing necessary support to enable the actors' success. This class comes highly recommended, you can't beat the benefits received!

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.

— James Mueller

Christy (Arington - Level 3) helped me to dig deeper in terms of personalization. Her feedback is always honest and intentional and the energy she gives her class is amazing.

"I love pursuing acting and I love how much I’ve learned while continuing my education through Acting Studio Chicago. What’s more is having teachers that truly support you and listen and care about how you feel and letting you roll with what works best for your scene no matter what. Thank you Adrianne Cury (Instructor, Level 3 ) for being such an amazing example of what a student/teacher relationship looks like. Accepting what we have to say and working outside of the box to make that happen. I feel so blessed to have you take me into the next level of this journey❤️ You Rock."
