Depot Theatre Academy offers class
WESTPORT — The Depot Theatre Academy outreach and education program is offering an in-person Musical Theatre and Monologue Rep Class from Sept. 28 to Oct. 26 on Mondays from 6 to 9 p.m.
This five-week course is meant for those interested in preparation for auditions, public speaking training and general acting craft development. Participants ages 18 and older will learn two monologues and two songs, and work together with instructors to find a monologue that complements the song to form a package to use for auditioning and showcasing.
Course instructors are the Depot’s Producing Artistic Director Kenney Green and Adam Michael Tilford, both seasoned theater professionals.
“We’re excited to offer this new program,” Green said in a press release. “Participants will learn how to act a song, not just sing it, and to learn how to find and implement new techniques of expression.”
The class will be held at the Depot Theatre at 6705 Main St., Westport, and is limited to 10 participants. Tuition is $200. Face coverings will be required while entering and exiting the theater, and any time when in close proximity to others. Strict physical distancing will be implemented, with designated seating in the theater and one participant on stage at a time.
Interested individuals should email Katie Shepard at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve their spot and/or print and send the registration form to Depot Theatre, P.O. Box 414, Westport, NY 12993. More information and the registration form are available at depottheatre.org.
