Award-winning actor, writer, director, Gailee Walker will conduct two winter/spring workshops for serious actors and writers beginning in March.
“Stop Acting and Be”, a 10 week workshop that meets on Sundays from 11 – 2 once a week is for any actor – stage or film – who dares to throw away the safe crutches used by too many actors and become a powerful presence on the stage and in film. A former Equity company member of Stages Rep, Ms. Walker has studied with Michael Shurtleff, the British American Drama Academy, and was heralded as “the next Meryl Streep” by Variety before she retired from acting to raise her children. Actors will develop cold reading skills by learning how to immediately discover character, relationship, conflict, and need. Understanding of the importance of humor, mystery and secret in every moment will be explored. The differences between working on an intimate stage, a theatre that seats thousands, and being in front of a film camera will be experienced.
The workshop begins on Sunday, March 9th at 11 am runs for 10 weeks. For more information call 466-3538
