Theater as Civic Practice taught by Jed Hancock-Brainerd and Rebecca Noon
Tuesdays, 7-9pm, March 7 to May 23, 2017
Sliding scale $25-$250, no one turned away for lack of funds
The tools of theater are powerful agents for change. Far beyond putting on a play or skit, the ability to work creatively in three dimensions, actively and compassionately listen and communicate, tell stories in ways that open hearts, and playfully reimagine our world can do much more than entertain. In this class we will learn basic physical storytelling tools using our bodies, voices, and imaginations and meet with civic leaders from across Providence to first identify that local problem we'd like to tackle and then collectively take action using performance techniques. Inspired by the work of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice . Register here for Theater as Civic Practice

Acting for Non-Actors taught by Tyler Dobrowsky
Wednesdays, 7-9pm, April 5 to May 24, 2017
Actors are magnetic people, often able to command a room, sympathize with others, interpret emotions and tell a great story. They are nothing if not self-confident... but they weren’t necessarily born that way! In this class, our professional theater staff will lead non-actors through acting exercises and scene study in order to tap into the confident, self-assured person living inside each of us in a fun, playful, and relaxed environment. Acting for Non-Actors will give you the ability to speak and be heard. Some rehearsal outside of class time is required. Class size limited to 12 students.
Master Class SeriesWe offer a series of Master Classes for college students and adults looking to deepen their theater practice and dig into intensive and concentrated training with top experts in their fields. Pulling from Trinity Rep’s artistic relationships from across the field, we hope to curate an exciting mix of teachers and subjects.
Open to any student who has previously taken Trinity Rep classes or equivalent acting experience/training at another institution. Please submit your resume upon registration.
