Performance Notes

× Advanced Acting Classes with Ron Jenkins

This summer, award-winning director/actor/playwright Ron Jenkins offers a 5-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 advanced actors through a series of exercises, games, and scene study. Ron will take you through the process of building a character for the stage. It’ll be fun and challenging, and stage experience is definitely recommended. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

This exciting summer session starts July 29 and runs through September long weekend. Limited availability, so book right away!
