Program Description

Ever wonder what is going through the people’s minds who are sitting behind the table watching you audition? Ever read an amazing book or play and wonder how the author came up with that? Ever wish you could learn more about your favorite characters from the best tv shows or movies? How about thinking about how YOU might have done things different if you were directing or writing those same shows? Well, this class will finally give YOU a chance…to sit on the other side of that table. During the pandemic, BARCLAY Performing Arts was faced with the same question that all Performing Arts Centers were burdened with, “Do we stay open or close?” Well, in case you are just joining our family, we stayed open and are proud to say that we are here today, bigger and better than ever, because of it. In that time, we (like so many other businesses) had to transform everything we have, do and did into a digital platform…somehow. One of the first things we did, was our Acting Classes. Some things took a little time to find its groove, but Acting took the sky and never looked back. We have instructors that have not only professional training in Theatre, but in Film as well, and so, our Head of our Acting Department, Om Jae, created this hybrid of Where Theatre Meets Film! The rest, is history. Focusing on furthering training and taking things to the next level, this class is one that has been discussed for a long time and we have waited until we had enough students who were truly ready for the bigger step, and most importantly a platform that would allow them to fit it in their busy schedules. This class is FAR from sitting on your butt-at the same time working with each other’s energy and passion is something you can’t help but continue to think about or want to work on with your friends before the next one. There is a reason this class has been created. Come and see what it means to ‘sit on the other side’. Join the family. Sign up today!
