1. How do I get started?
All potential students must first observe a class. To do so, please go to the Get Started tab and reserve a seat. Seating is limited and there is a $20 fee. After observing, if you decide you want to be part of the studio, you must complete the Audition Form, also under the Get Started tab, to schedule a day and time to audition for class placement.
2. Does the studio coach beginners?
Yes. There is a Thursday night 6:30 – 9:30 and a Saturday morning 10:00 – 1:00 beginner’s class. Each is taught by one of the Master Class actors.
3. How long are classes?
All classes meet once a week for 3 hours and go from month to month.
4. When do classes meet?
There are currently six classes per week at the studio. A Monday night Intermediate class, Tuesday morning Mixed level, Tuesday night Advanced, Wednesday night Master, Thursday night Beginner, and Saturday morning beginner. Actors will be assigned to one of those classes.
All night classes are from 6:30 – 9:30 and the day classes are from 10:00 – 1:00.
5, How much do classes cost?
5. Does the studio help find actors jobs?
On occasion, a casting director or filmmaker will contact the studio and ask us to post information about auditions. I try to limit these to paying jobs and people that I know.
6. Does the studio help actors find agents?
Once an actor has been at the studio for a year or more and they have demonstrated that they are prepared to start booking jobs, I send referral letters to agents.
7. Does the studio help with headshots, resumes, reels?
Advice and recommendations are abundant via emails and during class time.
8. What does the studio teach?
We teach classical scene study and character analysis.
9. What if I have to miss a class?
Because all scenes are done with a partner, attendance is important and thus, there are no make-up classes.
10. How do I move from the beginner class to one of the other classes?
If an actor starts in one of the beginner classes, they will matriculate to the next level once their coach believes they are ready and space becomes available.
11. What does the audition for class placement consist of?
The audition for class placement requires the actor to complete and submit the Audition Form on this site. The day and time for the audition will be set. The actor will prepare a short monologue of their choice and perform it for TBell only.
