Starlighters II Announces Acting Class

Anamosa - Starlighters II Theatre in Anamosa will be offering its “Acting 102” class. It begins Wednesday, February 23rd and runs for 6 consecutive Wednesdays from 7 PM to 10 PM. The deadline for registration is February 19.

This is a 6-week acting class that is designed to be a follow-up class to "Acting 101." However, it is NOT mandatory that a person has taken "Acting 101" before taking "Acting 102." "Acting 102" is aimed at those who would like to act in mainstage shows with Starlighters II Theatre as well as other theatres, but who have held back because they thought they needed better acting skills before they were ready. It is also aimed at young actors who have been involved in youth acting programs and high school theatre, and who want to be challenged on the next level, and move on to performing more demanding roles in mainstage productions. The class will be taught by directors Bob Furino (Delhi) and Rick Sanborn (Stone City) who are part of the Starlighters II Education Department.

"Acting 102" is based upon the Stanislavski System. It will include some review from "Acting 101," and also features such elements as ensemble development, trust, scene study, scene work, dialect, movement, voice/breath, character development, and character analysis. "Acting 102" is open to anyone 14 years of age or older.

There will be a $30 registration fee, payable at the first class session on February 23rd. The class will be held in The Studio on the third floor of the Starlighters Theatre, 136 E. Main Street in Anamosa.

Those interested in signing up for this "Acting 102" class may register simply by calling Starlighters II Theatre at 319-462-4793 Ext. 813 or by sending an e-mail to bfurino@mchsi.com. Include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address (if you have one).
