Tucson: Acting Scene Study with Doug Mitchell - Studio Connections
From: Robert Encila [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Wednesday, August 17, 2011 8:11 AM Subject: Acting Scene Study with Doug Mitchell
Studio Connections has only three more spots open for Doug Mitchell's "Acting Scene Study" class!Join us for an intensive eight-week course of discovery, including improvisation, theater exercises and scene study, covering the basics of acting, (choosing an objective, establishing relationships, determining conflict) and the rehearsal process: finding the character within oneself and making final choices. Emphasis will be placed on suspending one’s own ego and taking directions, thereby establishing a working, creative relationship with the director and the cast. Students will be required to commit to the whole course as well as to added rehearsal time with their partners during the week. Classes will be limited to contemporary scenes. Cost is $240.
Doug Mitchell has been teaching acting for 30 of his almost 50 years in the business. He has taught classes and private lessons in New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and Ashland, Oregon, and was fortunate to study with the great stage actress Uta Hagen and with William Hickey at the famous HB Studios in New York. He continues to use and teach Hagen’s method of acting, drawing the character from within one's own life experience. He has appeared on national television, film and in over 250 professional theater productions throughout the country. Tucson critics have called Mitchell a “must see,” and “an impressive talent that is reason alone” to see a show. The Tucson Weekly referred to him as a “talented and skilled pro,” and in 2010, Kathleen Allen rated him “one of the (5) must see actors in Tucson.” His students work throughout the United States and several currently have TV and commercial careers in Hollywood and New York.
