The ultimate ‘Drop-In Workshop”.  You can DROP-IN and do a scene or just DROP-IN and watch.


We have had two very successful trial runs for free.  The Zoom Meetings platform has enough flexibility to effectively run an acting class.  ​

IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHOOSE A SCENE PARTNER AND A SCENE TO WORK ON IN ADVANCE …

Glenn Quinn Mama Mia, Spamelot, Jersey Boys [lead]

I was able to quickly overcome my long held misconceptions about what acting is and was ushered into a place of freedom, spontaneity and freedom with the scene.


How this session works?

1) It works best for actors if you organize a scene partner a few days in advance

That way you can be learnt for the Drop In session on Wednesday.  Post a request on The Rehearsal Room Drop In WEDNESDAYS & SUNDAYS Facebook Group and see who might join you.    OR INVITE A FRIEND.

2) If you don't have a scene partner DROP IN ANYWAY.

You might find a scene partner on the day.  Have a scene on standby so you can email it once you do have a partner.
(Most scenes are gender neutral.  You can frequently swap a character's gender without any detrimental consequences.)

3) Practice your established skills and develop new ones

If you are already familiar with The Rehearsal Room techniques then this is a simple way to expand them further.  IF YOU AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THIS APPROACH USE YOUR OWN PROCESS AND SEE WHAT YOU LEARN.  Actors must be flexible, eh!!

4) You will rehearse in a 'Breakout Room' with your scene partner

The format is the standard approach to classes at The Rehearsal Room.  1) General discussion about acting theory  2) Actors move in pairs to 'Breakout Rooms' to work their scene (Richard can join you to offer advice.)  3) Rejoin the main group to play your scene and get feedback.

5) You can record your work

Zoom allows you to record your work so you can re-evaluate afterwards.

6) Enjoy a relaxed social environment

Enjoy the convivial atmosphere of these classes while you continue to explore the wondrous world of acting and KEEP EXERCISING YOU ACTING MUSCLES.  

6) Just keep on learning

You can make these sessions as challenging or relaxing as you like.  Actors who keep returning to The Rehearsal Room see there skills get better and better.

  • You will miss out on the FUN

  • You may never know the way this approach could change your view of acting and increase your skills
  • You will miss sharing stimulating views on a topic you love
  • You will never find out how much your skill could grow from these powerful techniques

ABOUT RICHARD...

Richard finds every workshop provides the opportunity not only for actors to grow more but also for the collective understanding of technique to grow more. The exciting element of these classes is that they train actors to think in a productive way about the practicalities of acting. The discussions are stimulating, purposeful and highly productive. Richard is always on the look out for the new view that he will learn from the next class. Some thought you philosophize about today might well be an exciting basis for tomorrow’s class.

Richard often says, “I get out of bed each day excited by the prospect of an unexpected new discovery.”
