Improvisation for the Stage (ages 10-14)
Meredith Melville brings years of Improvisation experience to The Actors Garden. This class is for those ready to take on a fun challenge. Improvisation is a great way for actors to learn how to always be in the moment, ready to react and ready to commit to a character. With loads of fun improvisation games, this class is a great way to polish your acting skills.
Musical Theatre II - The Audition (ages 14-18)
This class is specifically for students who plan to regularly audition for musical theatre, and will focus primarily on the singing portion of auditions. We will discuss how to create a well-rounded audition book, select and prepare audition song cuts, communicate with accompanists, and tailor auditions to specific shows/roles. During this ten week course student will also work on two pieces (a ballad and an up-tempo) and will have an opportunity to showcase these songs in our final class.
