Alaine's specialty is working with actors on scene and character study work. This involves working on the text to sharpen the actor's technique. Additional assignments will be given that help the actors use their own life experiences as a spring board for creative storytelling for their characters. Actors work closely together with a spirit of inspiration rather than competition. All material and scripts will be carefully selected by Alaine for each actor.
WEEKS 1-3: Actors will be working with Alaine extensively on scenes that she assigns in class.
WEEK 4: Showcase the scenes with an industry panel of three special guests.
WEEK 5: Private meetings with Alaine to discuss the overall work as well as the industry feedback.

About Harold Lewter▼
A native New Yorker from the Bronx, Harold studied Musical Theatre at Wagner College and then Acting at the University of Buffalo where he studied under the Tony-nominated actor Stephen McKinley Henderson and was mentored by Maria S. Horne. Harold began the road to his representative career as an assistant at Independent Artists Agency in 2010. During his time there, Harold and Cyd first crossed paths and, in 2011, he joined CLA to help in transitioning Broadway actors to Television and Film projects. His success in this role led to Harold becoming the point on all Theatre in 2013 and splitting Television and Film with Cyd in 2014. Through it all, Harold’s passion for developing actors has been his biggest motivator and can be seen in the personal care and attention that CLA prides itself on giving to all of its clients.
On the rare occasions when Harold isn’t developing the next generation of star actors or securing his clients prestigious roles, you can find him working on his Tennis and Golf game. As of this writing, he has yet to win Wimbledon or the Masters.
