Good ideas: Adult Summer Acting Intensive

Jenna Simeonov

Singers, do you have your summer plans sorted?

Ryerson Theatre School is offering its inaugural Summer Acting Intensive from August 8-13, 2016, directed by Ryerson faculty Kelly Arnsby. The week-long programme includes classes in scene study, movement, and voice, and culminates in a “work in progress” presentation on the final day.

“The course is open to anyone aged 19 years and up: professional actors; those considering a career in acting; educators; artists from other disciplines; or anyone who would like to experience a week of theatre school training in acting!”

Singers, you’re all pros at making the most out of your summer education, and summer programs rooted in operatic and vocal training are a big part of that. At $450 (plus HST), the Summer Acting Intensive is an economical, focused approach to honing skills that are vital for any working opera singer. As opera companies continue the move towards producing chamber-sized operas in intimate venues, acting chops have become a necessity, rather than a bonus feature on top of a killer voice.
