Hartnell College Theatre Department Announces Spring Classes
Salinas, CA—December 19, 2005—Calling all actors, directors, playwrights, and theatre technicians, The Hartnell College Theatre Department is now enrolling students into SpringFest 2006, its annual conservatory of classes designed to meet the training needs of seasoned performers and newcomers alike. Not only can students learn about everything from performing slap-stick, acting with a dialect, and running a light board, but they can do it with a flexible schedule. Class sessions are two meetings a week, four weeks each session. There will be three sessions of the following classes offered this spring.
The Studio Series
A series of classes designed to not only teach students how to perform in a three-quarter thrust acting space, but also to develop critical acting skills including dialect and vocal training, preparing for auditions, and advanced character development.
The Proscenium Theatre Series
Like the Studio Series, these classes will help students develop the necessary skills to perform on a proscenium stage. Students will learn how to extend their physicality, vocalization, and characterization to fill the playing space.
Black Box Projects
For both advanced and intermediate actors, this class provides students with the opportunity to either practice with two person scenes or to develop a short one person showcase, depending on their skill level.
Open Studio Presentations
For advanced performers, this program offers actors, directors, and playwrights a venue to develop and showcase individual projects. Participants must submit an application describing their project in order to enroll in this class.
To enroll or find out more information about these and other classes, contact TWS artistic program director Melissa Chin Parker at (831) 755-6987 or firstname.lastname@example.org
