Scene Study is a class for actors, directors and those who are curious about the process of rehearsing a play in a professional company. During sessions, you'll work on scenes, just like rehearsal. Natasha will lead you through discussions, ask questions, and work on blocking. You will investigate scenes through the lens of a person who plans to perform a character and/or direct the play. You'll be expected to voice your opinion, to perform text, to work. Some classes will lean more toward acting the character, some will lean more towards directing the scene. It will be a room where discussion will be robust, work will go fast, questions will probe deep. It's a window into rehearsing a play at a professional level. Come ready to play and ready to express your opinion.
