Cockroach Theatre Company is thrilled to partner with Rayme Cornell (see bio below) to offer TWO exciting new classes to both novice and experienced actors.

 

STUDIO ONE

 

Studio One will unlock your imagination to explore fundamental skills that new and working actors alike can benefit from. Just as a musician practices notes, the acting skills honed in Studio One will deepen the skilled actor’s access to their most powerful acting choices and emotional life. New actors will learn how to approach text, character, and inner life. Exercises will pull from various methods such as Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, Sanford Meisner, Lee Strasberg, Michael Chekhov, and Stella Adler.
