Class Description

AUDITION ONLY! This year our advanced acting academy will take on the difficult style of comedy.  Comedy is notoriously difficult to master, but in this class students will spend time learning how to apply basic acting technique to a comedic script. The class will include physical work, introduction to comedic perspective, understanding the relationship between performer and audience in a comedy, character development, and script analysis. Students will learn how to use these techniques to produce honest yet comedic performances that will culminate in a full length comedic play. The specific play will be chosen after the members of the class are selected.

COVID PHASE CHANGE POLICY - During the covid-19 pandemic, if it becomes necessary to return to Virginia Phase 1, the current classes will become virtual.

Please see our Refund Policy here.
Prerequisite: Students are asked to fill out an Academy Application and send in an audition video by Saturday, August 22, at midnight. Students need to video themselves performing a monologue from the list below. Students do NOT need to memorize the monologue, and can read it, but need to perform it in character. Please email if you have any conflicts with the audition deadline. Class spots will be offered before registration begins.
