Quinnipiac University Theatre Professor and Founder of Present & Perform teaches this acting class for adults. Each student will have the opportunity to work on two contemporary scenes or one scene and one monologue with the goal being: identifying and committing to the character’s driving intention (goal) through use of the body and the voice. We strive for work that is personal and nuanced. You will complete the course with tools to use going forward with acting as well as public speaking.
Whether you are new to scripted acting or have been working on your craft for years, this course will be challenging and fun. A small class size ensures individual attention and enables every student to work in each class.
