Method Acting with Jeremy Kruse

Method Acting with Jeremy Kruse

The classes consist of fun acting exercises and games that engage the actor’s imagination and spark creativity. Students learn Method acting principles: creating real behavior, creating a character, stage presence, and more. Students also create and develop original, short scenes. The term ends with an open class for invited family and friends that showcase the scenes and the acting principles that have been explored. (The number of guests allowed to attend the open class is dependent on the policy, at the time, outlined by the State of Illinois.)

Tuesdays, November 10 – December 15, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM (6 weeks)
Ages 8 – 13
