× Intermediate Acting Class with Ron Jenkins Monologue Performance

This fall, award-winning director/actor/playwright Ron Jenkins offers a 8-week acting intensive for experienced performers at The HAT. Learn how to build a character from the ground up. From the page to the stage, Ron Jenkins takes intermediate actors through a series of exercises, games, and monologue preparation as you work through the process of building a character for the stage. It’ll be fun and challenging, and moderate stage experience is recommended. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

Includes an invitation to the invited Dress Rehearsal of Little Shop of Horrors on Oct. 28

This exciting new session starts Sept 29 and runs to Nov. 17. Only 14 spots available, so book right away!
