Flex your acting muscles and refine your craft on a consistent basis. Explore the art and craft of acting through the great scenes of American dramatic literature written by some of our best american playwrights in this 6 week course.
Maggie integrates a variety of exercises into the scene study format, as well as working with the actor to learn to take risks and make big, bold choices thereby giving the actor an opportunity to improve their craft while gaining performance experience.
Casting will be done at the first class. The next 5 weeks will be spent exploring, refining and blocking in preparation for the final presentation on week 6 to a top NY Casting Director.
Here's a list of playwrights that will be looked at for scenes:
Maggie Phillips has been a working union actor and teacher for over two decades. A 15-year stage career at some of the top LORT regional houses, she has had the opportunity to perform many of Shakespeare's ladies, Tennessee Williams' heroines, and a Eugene O'Neill victim. On the other end of the spectrum, her experience in contemporary theater is vast, both comedy and drama, and she has had the great good fortune to originate several roles in new plays. In front of a camera, Maggie created the role of Marianne on "The Guiding Light", and has an indie film "Aquarium" which won an Honorable Mention at this January's Sundance Film Festival and played at Brooklyn Academy of Music in June. As a voice-over, she has been heard on scores of commercials for everything from retail to pharmaceuticals to automobiles to cosmetics. As a narrator, Maggie has worked for many clients, including The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, The Learning Channel, and Court TV. Promo clients include Lifetime, A&E, and Buena Vista's A.M. network lineup--Live with Regis and Kelly, The View, and General Hospital. She is the founder of the original V/O Gym.
