Adult Classes

ADULT CLASSES

Remember school? Primary? Middle? High? Yeah, this is nothing like that. Education isn’t a conveyer belt; it’s the child of curiosity. And curiosity isn’t exclusive to children (or cats). So come on, you grown-up, you! Find out more about who you/we really are by engaging with the Lookingglass in a series of courses designed for adults, and led by some of the most accomplished, inspiring artists our city has to offer.

Please note: Classes will be held online through Zoom.

Classes begin August 1- Register today!

FIND THE FUNNY WORKSHOP

So the focus is on STEAM, is it? Well, comedy employs it all. Our resident “laugh architect” and totally tonally brave author, Ensemble Member Kevin Douglas, will show you the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics he uses to create comedy, whether intended for plays, sketches, television/film, or friends and relations. You’ll learn to find the funny in everything — even Dads (please send them here *praying hands emoji*)!

TURNING THE TABLES: AUDITION WORKSHOP

“Can I use this chair?”

Has the answer ever been “no?” Skip the ask and seize the room! According to longtime actor, savvy producer, and Lookingglass Casting Director (for 20+ years), Ensemble Member Phil Smith, “Auditions are for actors; not acting.” Circle up, then, and let’s examine that and how it applies to each part of your audition experience. Every session will start with PSmith’s perspective, proceed to monologue/scene coaching, and wind up with team conversations. This “Zroom” promises to be inspired, engaged, useful, and supportive, and by the time we wrap and tie off the bow, you’ll have a sure sense of how to leave any audition room happy.

So use the chair, or let it sit. The choice (and the power) is yours!
