New Acting Classes Begin!

Acing Auditions & Building Your Acting Toolbox.

The Avenue Theatre is proud to present “Acing Auditions & Building Your Acting Toolbox.” This seven-week course will be held on Saturdays from 1 PM to 3 PM from January 7 to February 11, six weeks of rehearsal followed by a showcase performance.

Angela Bullard, the instructor for the class, holds a Master’s Degree in Theater and is an experienced actor and teacher. She taught at the famous Second City in Chicago and has worked as a professional actor both in Chicago and in Regional Tours of plays throughout the Midwest. She can be seen in a third season episode of Chicago Fire, an NBC television show.

This class, open to anyone 16 years and older, is designed to give students the experience needed to become more comfortable with play auditions and acting. Instruction in techniques such as monologue delivery and cold reading will be given. Basic acting techniques such as blocking, projecting, memorizing, articulating, and timing will be taught. Beat work by Stanislavski will model how to break down a script and hone your performance skills.

This class is designed to take you, regardless of your skill level, and help you to improve. Ms. Bullard stated that whether you are a “green as grass beginner” or “seasoned actor or director” there will be opportunities for you to learn, improve, and have lots of fun with your fellow actors.

Angela will also be available to help those who are interested in acting and might need advice on how to further their potential career plans.
