Do people tell you that you should be on stage? Have you always been curious about acting and maybe have a secret yearning to strut your theatrical stuff? This class is ideal for you! It is designed for those who are new to acting as well as those who just want to polish their technique and add new skills to their toolbox.

Acting For Beginners – Meisner Technique is an introduction to Sanford Meisner’s approach to developing a foundational acting technique. This acting class is a step-by-step progression of acting exercises that develop the actor’s ability to work organically, creating truthful, expressive behavior in acting. This acting class covers the beginning Meisner techniques from word repetition through their first application to a scene and monologue. In a fun safe environment. This workshop will run for six weeks and will end with a showcase performance, where you can share your new skills with friends and family.

This workshop is open to students age 14 and up ( or with the approval of instructor). Space is limited. For more information or to register please contact Missy Mullens at 352-270-2749 or by email at
