As an actor, it is essential to have a well-rounded knowledge of plays, playwrights, styles and genres. Not only does it allow you to be more prepared for auditions, it also keeps you in touch with the current theatre scene—one that is steeped in important, and often-referred to history, but is also forever expanding.
Welcome to the Art & Soul Acting Book Club for Actors: a book club that focuses on plays. Each meeting has a single focal point that is central to the understanding of theatre: a particular author, genre, time period or theme, etc. Members emerge with a deep knowledge of the material and its relevance to acting and theatre.
Participants will have profound encounters with influential playwrights and landmark plays. They will develop a deep understanding of all aspects of the works including stories, themes, and character break-downs: an amazing resource during a busy audition season.
The Book Club for Actors is currently on end-of-summer break. The next playwright will be announced mid/late-September. Join us!
