The ultimate ‘Drop-In Workshop”. You can DROP-IN and do a scene or just DROP-IN and watch.
We had two very successful trial runs for free that revealed the Zoom Meetings platform has enough flexibility to effectively run an acting class.

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.
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.
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.)
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!!
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.
Zoom allows you to record your work so you can re-evaluate afterwards.
Enjoy the convivial atmosphere of these classes while you continue to explore the wondrous world of acting and KEEP EXERCISING YOU ACTING MUSCLES.
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.
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.”
USE THESE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.
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.
AND ... HAVE SOME FUN!!!
