*This workshop is for experienced actors only who have already taken an introductory
acting class and been in at least one play presented to the general public.
Ages 12 or above.
This eight week workshop is designed to take your acting skills to a new level. Completely redesigned from last year's boot camp, we will explore how to authentically live your character, discovering their essence while staying true to the lines of the play. Content will include nailing successful auditions, setting clear personal objectives, making the character and the set your own, choosing powerful actions, and taking risks onstage.
About the instructor
David Skibbins was a theater and film major in college, and has starred in many local dramatic and musical productions. He was Director for
An Ordinary Woman Under Stress and
and Assistant Director for
Diary of Anne Frank and
He has been in many local productions as an actor. He was an associate professor for a decade, teaching in three Bay Area universities.
This class will focus on the hard work of achieving excellence onstage. Participants must schedule weekly rehearsal time outside of class with their scene partner, and be willing to perform in our public recital in the first week of May. This year the focus of our boot camp is on hands-on production. My goal, as always, is to have each of your performances be a new and potentially unexpected experience.
