Sign Up Today!ACTOR PREP: The Character Analysis
w/John Cappelletti

10-week graduate level workshop

February 9 - April 12, from 1 - 3:00 PM.
Registration and payment in advance is required. The Institute will furnish the play booklet used for class instruction. Students will be required to reimburse Institute for the cost of the material.

On February 9th, New York based actor/teach/writer/director John Cappelletti will join the staff of the Palm Beach Institute for the Entertainment Arts. He has taught at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, the New School and the High School of Performing Arts. His students include many high-profile names in the entertainment industry. John has helmed acting workshops at theater schools in Athens, Damascus, Mumbai, Rome and the Film Studios at Cinecitta, Italy. He has written original plays, which were produced in NYC. He has acted off-Broadway and directed productions of contemporary and classical plays at the Shubert, the Roundabout, BAM, EST, and the Guthrie, among many others.

John's class, which is a college level seminar entitled Actor Prep: The Character Analysis, is a 10-week course during which students will dissect and analyze a classic American play to explore clues the playwright has given as to the portrayal of the characters. The play will be read out loud and extensive notes taken so that students can portray the characters as the playwright intended. At the end of the course, students will play the characters as they were meant to be and in improvisations not in the original writing.

Because this class is highly sought by actors wishing to hone their skills at the highest level, I am posting this notice earlier than usual. We are limiting enrollment so that those who attend get the full benefit of John's expertise. Enrollment requires a commitment to take all 10 classes.
