Head of Casting at Playwrights Horizons, Alaine Alldaffer, in a 2-week Scene Study class!

Perfect your audition, cold reading, and scene analysis techniques with one of our most popular teachers who has regularly called in and CAST One On One actors!

**This class is perfect for actors studying with Alaine for the first time or those who've taken with her
and need a refresher.**


Format

Alaine's specialty is working with actors on scene and character study work. This involves working on theater text to sharpen the actors own existing technique. Actors work closely together with a spirit of inspiration rather than competition. All material and scripts will be carefully selected by Alaine, for each individual actor.

PREPARATION:
For the first class, Alaine will choose and email you scenes to review and then perform semi-cold. You will receive this material 1-2 days before the class.

For the second class, assigned material will be given to you at the end of the first class.
