Do you remember being a child and how much fun you had imagining you were someone else? Do you remember the secret dialogues you shared with your imaginary friends? Come do it again...with a whole group of people doing the same thing. Come find your “inner child” again!
“Acting for the Ageless” lets you practice the art of improvisational acting...telling other's stories and listening while others tell yours. In this one-day workshop, we’ll:
- Talk about the art of acting and the structure of storytelling.
- Write down the story we want to tell.
- Tell our stories to the group.
- Have lunch. Please bring a sack lunch.
- Cast your story and you will be an actor for someone else's.
- Rehearse the skits.
- Perform the skits for classmates.
THERE IS NO MEMORIZATION REQUIRED IN THIS CLASS.
About the facilitator, Rick Bernstein:
Since the early ‘80’s Rick has been invested in bringing his style of storytelling to the public. A Colorado native, Rick spent the last 24 years of his time in Colorado running the theatre he founded, The Morrison Theatre Company/Miners Alley Playhouse. Now, Rick and his wife, Paige Larson, find themselves in Nashville where they are surrounded by an amazing synergy of arts and culture.
Rick’s first love in the theatre has always been teaching. From 6-year-olds to senior citizens, Rick has always been passionate about sharing the art of storytelling with others. Be it actors or novices who just love to see plays, Rick’s believes that art is a quality in all of us and we should all find our personal way to express it. Whether it is to design furniture, write books, paint pictures, or cook great food…we are all artists looking for our way to tell our story. Rick is also passionate about not qualifying Art. “All Art is art! Some Art will have a greater value to some patrons than other art, but art is art! After producing and or directing and/or acting in over 175 productions, Rick still finds the collaborative process of creating theatre ‘Magical’. He looks forward to sharing the ‘Magic’ with YOU!
