CLASSES AT GAMM STUDIO
amateur and seasoned actors, aspiring playwrights and dabblers, business professionals and PUBLIC SPEAKERS . . . anyone can benefit from a comfortable, supportive, and enjoyable gamm studio experience. our classes emphasize the individual student's needs, rather than a method of theater training.
“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

MAKE A PLAY ANYWAY
Rehearse, collaborate, and connect with other willing and generous actors as part of our new programming using Zoom technology to rehearse and perform a play. The art of making theater thrives on connection, empathy and collaboration. It's hard to imagine creating a rehearsal room community in a virtual space; but our process of actor training brings us very close to the real thing! Join us and be reminded of why you love being in a play.
Here's what some students from our pilot class based on Nick Payne's Constellations are saying:
“This was, indeed, a very special, intimate and emotional journey for many of us, in a time where we need to be physically apart. Extra kudos to Steve for being such a thoughtful, emotionally connected, and kind person in this process.”
“I had such a profound experience in this class. What I got was so much more than just a scene study. Steve is certainly one of the most affirming teachers I’ve ever had.”
Make A Play Anyway: Lungs by Duncan MacMillan
July 20 - August 31
Instructor: Steve Kidd
This class brings the professional rehearsal process to the virtual classroom. Work together to produce a version of Duncan MacMillan’s Lungs, then perform it live on Zoom on August 31. You will be cast as one of the play's two characters for several 3-5 minute scenes, and will collaborate with multiple actors in rehearsing and performing the entire 90-minute play. Actors are required to learn their lines, investigate their own good/bad acting habits and fully commit to the realities of the characters for the best possible performance for our audience.
Make A Play Anyway: True West by Sam Sheppard
July 22 - September 2
Instructor: Steve Kidd
Sam Sheppard's True West is one of the most admired and produced plays in the American Theater. Dive into a full virtual production via Zoom technology with actor and instructor Steve Kidd, who played Austin in The Gamm's 2020 production of True West. This play has been staged with two sisters as well as two brothers, so all genders and ages are invited to take part in this professional rehearsal process. Rehearsals will cultivate our collective imagination through extensive table work and beat-by-beat scene investigation, bringing these famed characters to our own personal experience.
