...it is time to teach the Actors again. September through December, two venues will be my home for these weeks. The Guthrie Theatre education Program has asked me to again teach Auditioning, The Business of the Business. Lordy, I have much to share with these eager students foraging their potential paths to their DREAMS. Also, I shall return to a beloved course at my alma mater, Acting for the Camera, University of Minnesota. My focus is Acting in the Feature Film, 20 curious would-be actors as they approach their BA graduation. From the major film experience to local Indy production. I know that many young performers would be thrilled if they could 'have suitcase' will travel 'to Hollywood or NYC' and wake up in the the 'movie business'. A never ending call to glamour.
And, I believe a goodly number of them through the years have done just that. Let us see who will be bold enough to seek and land a role in a Film, this year. Ah yes, welcome all you dreamers of footlights and the the film director warning…'Action'…! Find your passions and then discover from the myriad plays and roles that emulate your sensibility. Thereby. bringing the words from stage and screen writers to Life!
