Summer scene study

Portland Players Summer Scene Study and Showcase

Registration Fee: $50

Dates: July 23- August 27
Sundays 4 – 6pm

Showcase: Friday September 1, 2017 at 7:30pm

Join us for a six-week scene study and community building program.
Accepting 20-30 actors aged 18+.

Scenes will be explored for clarity of events, individual objectives and intentions, beats and moments. An emphasis will be placed on character behavior, choices, and emotional life. Exercises will be used to help scene partners dive into a character’s physical and emotional life, increase concentration and cooperation, and open up the actor’s instrument and imagination. Personal, thorough and supportive conversations will be had about each scene with input from the entire group during each session. Notes will be provided if asked for.

For the first three weeks, we will use a rotating blend of scene partners and scenes. The last three weeks will be spent focused on one scene and one partner. The culmination will be a one night barn burner series of scenes. Each scene will have 10-15 minutes of stage time.

Digital copy of a free headshot will be provided. The showcase will be filmed and edited and each participant will receive a copy for their reel.
