    This workshop has two sessions;  March 13th & 27th from 3-5 pm

    Improv comedy is a type of live theater in which actors perform without a script.  Short, self-contained scenes will be created to provide the structure for improvisation.  Learn to listen, respond, react in a positive manner; show honest emotions and most importantly have fun.  You will learn that most improv techniques apply to other forms of theater.

    Workshop leaders are Barb Turino and Dr. Lisa Bender.  Both quick on their feet with a huge passion for authenticity!

    This Workshop is 2 Sessions; April 2nd and 9th from 1:00pm to 2:30

    The purpose of the workshop is to teach participants a specific technique that they can use in auditions. Sybil calls the technique "picking the word off the page." This allows the reader to process information before speaking the words and without looking down at the page.

    Sybil Moore will be leading this workshop.  She studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory in Hollywood for approximately four years during which time she developed skills in voice projection, stage combat, stage presence, cold reading. This is also a topic she studied outside of the Conservatory.

    Memorizing lines is one skill that will most often be an essential component of acting. In this workshop you will learn how to get your lines down firmly and accurately.  You'll apply a process that is very effective.

She is quite an accomplished actor, director, singer, coach, orchestra conductor and producer, experienced in all aspects of the theater Arts.  She's performed in major theaters and directed an array of musicals, comedies and dramas, including: The Fantastics, Steel Magnolias, Twelve Angry Jurors and most recently, Nigh Watch here in Laguna Woods Village. Jeanne successfully ran her own acting studio, Class Acting Academy.
