Responsible for populating the sets of major motion pictures filming in the Boston area, Boston Casting compiles an experienced faculty to hone histrionics with professional acting instruction. For six Sundays starting January 8, Screen Acting 101: Breaking into Acting prepares students to light up the big and small screen or spice up programming on convenience-store surveillance monitors. Under the guidance of professional acting coach Jennifer Salvucci, students break down scripts, sweat through mock auditions, and practice acting in front of a camera. In Improv Technique for Film & TV, teens hone their craft through playful theater games to stay on their toes in audition situations and create their own comedy sketches. Children sharpen budding acting, voice, and dance skills through monologues set to music in Musical Theater for Kids as coach Lorna Brunelle shows them how to stand out in a crowd without resorting to flashy costumes or fireworks.
