(Teens and Adults) Actor and Director Danny Bolton, member of the Actor’s Equity Association (*AEA) teaches students about effective methods to approach roles through the rehearsal process.

How can the actor make the most out of rehearsal time and individual work? Under the perspective and guidance of a working actor/director theatre artist, students have a unique glimpse into what skills and approaches the actor can contribute to the rehearsal room so that the performance is dynamic and rich.
Actors, Safety and Self-Advocacy
with Sarah Flanagan
Sunday, October 21, 11 am to 12:30 pm
(For ages 14+) A predominantly lecture-style class which aims to instill in actors the notion that they are responsible for being their own safety advocate out in the professional world. This class introduces critical skills and concepts that are not generally covered in college theatre education. Learn basic methods to safety-check stage combat weapons, the importance of knowing personal limits, how and when to ask appropriate questions related to safety, the importance of self-advocating in the face of a safety-related issue, and what the chain of command to address your safety concerns. While useful at all ages, this class is particularly important for students heading to collegiate theatre programs, and young theatre practitioners entering the professional arena.
