|   what's it all about?  |

Utilizing classic acting techniques, improvisation, scene study, and character work, we'll explore the depth of characters, being in the moment on stage, and how to live truthfully under the given circumstances of a scene. We'll also have mock auditions to practice, learn how to prepare, experience engaging with people in the room, and gain more confidence.
