Have you ever been bitten by the acting bug? Participants of this class will learn acting basics like stage directions, character development, improvisation, and pantomime, and then move on to scene work. The group will decide as a class if they would like to have a final showcase performance on the stage for family and friends.
The class will be taught by Jennifer Spieler, the Artistic Director of Red Branch Theatre Company. She has worked as a theatre director for the National Endowment for the Arts' Big Read Program, the Baltimore Playwrights Festival, Center Stage's Young Playwrights Festival, the Kennedy Center's American College Theatre Festival, Baltimore's Children's Theatre Association, and internationally as part of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival in Sibiu, Romania. She served as a 2007 fellow at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center's highly selective National Critics Institute, and for nine years she taught classes in theatre criticism, beginning and advanced acting, beginning and advanced directing, television drama, stage dialects, unarmed stage violence, and both the Senior Project workshop and freshmen Frontiers in Theatre seminar as an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Goucher College. She holds an M.F.A. degree in directing from Virginia Commonwealth University.
