Have you ever wished you could work up the courage to audition for that community theater production, but just couldn’t? Did you enjoy theater in school, but feel it has been too long since you’ve done it? Join Actor and Director Edwin F. Heary at Springville Center for the Arts for a “Play Study and Actor’s Workshop.”

The subject matter of the sessions will be August: Osage County, a theatrical play by playwright Tracy Letts. This powerful and intense play will provide the platform for actors to evoke enriched character development as they search their depths in finding their most despicable representation of humanity. Ideal for beginning actors who wish to get engaged in theater, but these sessions will also serve the most experienced actors.

This free workshop is open to female and male actors of all skill levels and will meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. starting Jan. 23. The programs will conclude with one stage reading on March 8th at 7:00 p.m. Carol Mongerson Theater is located at Springville Center for the Arts, 37 N. Buffalo Street, Springville, NY 14141. More information is at SpringvilleArts.org. Call (716) 592-9038 to register.
