Our Theater Workshops showcase student actors ages 8-18 and teach them to shine!
We are pleased to continue offering adult workshops this season. Watch for additional workshops and classes coming soon!
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.
Devon is an actor and director based out of NYC. She has a BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and has trained at Playwrights Horizons Theatre School, Meisner, and The Classical Studio. Additionally, Devon has two years experience working in NY casting offices, The Roundabout Theatre Company and Calleri Casting. She will complete her MFA in Acting from Brown/Trinity Repertory in the spring of 2015. In the 2014/15 academic year, Devon will also being teaching Intro to Acting & Directing at Brown University.
