“Unlike most of your students, I’m not an actor and don’t want to be. But I’m a public speaker, podcaster, and television host. I’ve learned more from Gamm Studio classes than any other workshops or oration courses that I’ve taken in the past. Most public speakers might not think to take an acting class, but they should! The Gamm made me better.”

 

Jeff Belanger, public speaker and Emmy-nominated host of PBS' New England Legends

AUDITION TECHNIQUES FOR BIPOC ACTORS

January 4 - February 8

6 ONLINE Sessions

Mondays 6:30pm-8:30pm

Instructor: Alexis Ingram

Tuition: $160

 

This class is designed to empower BIPOC actors looking to gain experience with the Equity and Non-Equity audition and callback process. Students will work on commanding the room, analysis of production seasons, the development of techniques for monologue selection, and zeroing in on roles while staying true to themselves. This class is for beginners and seasoned BIPOC actors to hone the work they want to be doing, with a lens on navigating traditionally white supremacist theatrical systems.  Please prepare a monologue to be performed on the first day of class. Once registered, students should submit a headshot and resume (if available-not required!) to the instructor. A zoom link will be provided by the first day of class.
