Join Paragon founder Deborah Metzger for a four-week intensive study on character and scene analysis.
Each week will include:
Discussion on an assigned play to be read over the course of five weeks, at home, then discussed in class. This allows us to really get into the writer’s head, explore the possibility of CHOICES, what drives the main character, and what is hidden in the script, only to be found by those who really delve. This is one of the best tools for actors, yet it is seldom offered outside of a college setting. These discussions will change the way you look at plays and acting!
Most of the class time will be spent on scene work. Deborah will be assigning dramatic scenes, working with actors to find the many layers that can so easily be missed on first glance. Watch your scene transform from “acting” to a piece in which your words are only a reaction to your scene partner!
Join us for this very different and interesting session! Due to the nature of the class, students must have graduated high school and have previous experience or training to register.
Class size is limited so everyone can get plenty of time to work! Last year’s class sold out quickly, so don’t wait!
Any medical conditions or allergies the instructors should be aware of?
