Free The Actors’ Typing Workshop

The Actors Typing Workshop

Do you know how Casting Directors perceive you?
Do you want to play the girl/guy next door when you would be better suited to play the wacky neighbor?
Knowing and leaning into our type as actors help us know what characteristics we need to play and which ones we exude naturally.

Join us on July 15th from 4-6 pm EST for a free Actors’ Typing Workshop.
Share your current headshot with the virtual room to hear the first impressions your headshot gives off. Crowdsource the opinions of your fellow actors and use the guiding exercises from T. Schreiber’s staff to gain a new perspective on how the world sees you and what roles you can easily fit into. At the end of the workshop, enter a raffle for 50% off of one of our summer classes now enrolling.

Space in this workshop is limited, so enroll today and be sure to log on early the day of the event!

 

Black Lives Matter

 

We at the Studio acknowledge that white supremacy is a systemic force in our country and in the theatre and film community. We pledge to make a difference and do better as a professional training program, as a theatre, and as members of the arts community. We are in the process of establishing specific actions to accomplish these goals.

 

“Liberation is an everyday practice. Health, wellness, and vitality are all forms of resistance, especially for black, brown, and indigenous communities.
The more we take care of our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, the better we will be able to show up for ourselves, each other, and the movement.”
 Ayo Clemons

As we continue to recharge and do anti-racist work, we wanted to share a few resources with you.
