Theater as Civic Practice taught by Jed Hancock-Brainerd and Rebecca Noon
Theater as Civic Practice is FULL.
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 .

Beginner Classes

This set of classes is for adults (18 years and older) at the beginning of their acting career or who are hoping to revisit a love of performance. Students can take more than one beginner acting class and would learn new techniques from different instructors.

Acting for Non-Actors taught by Tyler Dobrowsky
Acting for Non-Actors is FULL. To be placed on the waitlist, email education@trinityrep.com
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 Series

We 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.

Whether you’re looking to get back into acting, planning to audition for graduate school or a
theater, we can help you hone the techniques necessary to audition successfully. Students should prepare two contrasting monologues, a headshot and resume. This class will explore different types of acting auditions, with a special emphasis on the two-monologue theatrical audition. Students will do mock auditions for Greene, Dallas Theater Center’s casting director, and will learn helpful techniques on how best to present themselves, as well as common pitfalls to avoid.
