Due to overwhelming demand, the Ridgefield Theater Barn is offering a new Scene Study Class – the practice of acting through doing. Under the superb direction of Devon Caraway, participants will work in pairs on an American Realism Scene, moving through a rehearsal process and learning what needs to be accomplished when working on a production. As they work, students will learn about the Elements of Storytelling, Imaginative Tools, and how to most effectively use their instrument when acting. Students will also be reading texts weekly that will heighten their awareness on acting and the construction of theater making.
