Michael Chekhov Acting Technique Class Mondays 7-10PM
First Fall Session - Eight Week Class – September 10 – October 29

For new and continuing students of the Chekhov Technique. *

The Michael Chekhov Acting Technique provides for the creative process of the actor with effective tools and a working method to give actors what they need to reach artistic and career success. Chekhov’s Technique is a cutting edge approach to character development and dynamic performance.

Each session of these technique classes will include training in the principles of the technique as found in Chekhov’s book, To The Actor. Actors will develop characters with imaginative improvisational exploration using Chekhov’s guiding points of focus, and short solo or partner scenes. Actors will work on characters they are preparing and text from monologues, learning how to use the technique creatively and effectively to awaken the inner life of the character. As we work in an ensemble format, you will be practicing all evening on your character and scene. Actors may choose to work on any character they want to develop for an audition or upcoming performance for theatre or film.

These Monday evening classes may be repeated. The review of the technique helps the continuing actor stay in their best game while the actor new to the modus operandi of the Chekhov Technique encounters it for the first time. The supportive ensemble enables the solo concentration of many of the exercises and provides an audience for trying out ideas as you work. Actors should think of these studio classes as a way to prepare, a place to experiment, and a dedicated environment for the development of their art.

First Fall Session – Eight Week Class – Fee $370
Pay plan available

* Continuing students of the Studio and Chekhov colleagues visiting from out of town are invited to attend these Monday technique classes on a drop-in basis with permission. E-mail or call to indicate your interest.
