Adult Acting and Showbiz Series
Join Artist Amanda Trusty in this 7-week series focusing on the fundamentals of Acting and Show Business!
This series for ages 18+ requires no previous training, and will cover the basics of acting you THOUGHT you knew!
Classes will feature understanding theatre vocabulary, introduction to scene work, rehearsal etiquette, and audition tactics- just in time for “Beyond Therapy” and “The Rocky Horror Show” auditions!
The skills learned from this class are creative, insightful, and can applied to enhance everyday life!
This series will be held in the APAC loft, located across the street from the former Oshima’s store, above the King’s Daughters Thrift Shop. Students must wear toe-covered shoes, comfortable clothing to move in, and provide a notebook and water bottle.
