BRAVO! acting classes

Bernadette Jones will offer acting classes at the BRAVO! Theatre beginning August 30 through the first week of October. Two groups with up to eight participants in each are offered: Tuesdays, noon to 2:30 p.m. and Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first two classes will be to enhance acting skills through monologue work. The last four classes will focus on scene study. Through this work, each actor will gain in confidence and begin to “own the role” on their terms, while developing the necessary skills for any future acting challenge.

Jones brings a wealth of experience to these classes, drawing from her over 35 years directing, teaching and coaching in the professional theatre and film world.

All proceeds from this workshop will go to support the BRAVO Theatre and its productions. A total of 15 hours of instruction is priced at 2,400 pesos.
