Rumble Theatre is offering a one-day workshop for emerging actors with Ron Jenkins; a crash-course to help sharpen and fine-tune your skills as an actor.
Selected participants will study and discuss character, motivation, the idea of “play” and living moment-to-moment in the scene. In addition to exercises and some work with audition pieces, selected scenes will be used over the course of the day as a basis for exploring text, beats, objectives and listening to your acting partner.
Saturday, March 15. 10am-4pm
Participation fee: $75.
To apply, please email a headshot and resume to email@example.com with the subject heading, “Actor’s Workshop”. Space is limited so submit early.
Deadline to Submit: March 11
Please note: Selected participants will be required to bring a three-minute audition monologue.
