The ultimate ‘Drop-In Workshop”. You can DROP-IN and do a scene or just DROP-IN and watch.
To work on your scene with another actor you pay $25 an hour. You buy either 4 hours of class time for $100 (Package 1) or 9 hours of class time for $200 (Package 2). Use your time in hourly blocks any day that suits you until the end of the year.
Or to watch just pay $20 (on the day). Stay as long as you like.
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.
If you are working on a scene the direction will be tailored to your personal needs. You don’t need to have trained here – Richard will adapt the acting process to support you..
This is a great way to try out The Rehearsal Room acting process. You can discover whether this approach makes sense for you. Ask questions and try the techniques one step at a time.
If you are already familiar with these techniques then this is a simple way to expand them further. There is so much information available here that the learning is never ending. Actors just keep growing and growing.
Many actors have noticed that if the training isn’t regular the skills do drop off. This is the perfect way to keep your skills strong and active.
Enjoy the convivial atmosphere of these classes while you continue to explore the wondrous world of acting. You can make these sessions as challenging or relaxing as you like.
Actors who keep returning to The Rehearsal Room just see there skills get better and better.
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.”
Learn skills you will use throughout your career. Learn to be real, to be versatile, to be a great listener and to be skilled in auditions. At the Wednesday Drop-In you will learn a remarkable variety of skills.
Over his twenty-five year directing career Richard found that many actors he auditioned didn’t actually listen. They acted listening to pre-planned choices they had intelligently worked out as a result of their preparation. That pathway plainly didn’t work – it was fake. Even actors who had emerged from the major teaching institutions often couldn’t listen for real.
