A Red Orchid Theatre Professional Development:

(Previous class. Stay tuned for our next offering.)


Taught by Ensemble Member Shade Murray.image1 (2)

In this class, each actor will be assigned a role in a play and will cultivate that role over a six-week simulation of the rehearsal process. We will consider audition, table work, blocking, scene-work and run-through’s. We will talk about the professional and personal challenges that emerge in each stage: the moments that block us, intimidate us, and restrict us. We will identify ways to be a more honest, liberated and productive actor.

Members of the A Red Orchid Ensemble will attend class to offer their perspective on the topics at hand.

Feb. 6th – Mar. 13th **The Class on Feb. 13th or on Feb. 20th will be on a different day or at a different location due to The Nether Industry night TBD.)
