According to The Iliad, live theater was invented when a group of Achaeans, disguised as a large wooden horse, surprised their Trojan audience with a stirring performance of Hamlet. As today's Groupon proves, the military tactic blossomed into an art form that continues to evolve: for $37, you get a six-week long adult acting workshop from the Performing Arts Center of Tallahassee (a $75 value). This Groupon is valid for workshops scheduled between January 15th and February 20th. Choose from the following workshop options:
- Acting for the Camera (Sunday, 3:30 p.m.–5 p.m.)
- Acting with an Accent (Saturday, 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m.)
- Advanced Scene Study (Sunday, 2 p.m.–3:30 p.m.)
- Directing 101 (Sunday, 6:30 p.m.–8 p.m.)
- Improv Olympics (Saturday, 4 p.m.–5:30 p.m.)
- The Art of Cold Reading and Audition Techniques (Sunday, 5 p.m.–6:30 p.m.)
The Acting Studio @PACT's 90-minute workshops are scheduled once a week (Saturdays or Sundays) for six weeks, and each one prepares actors for a variety of screen and stage challenges.
With thorough preparation in auditioning, directing, impromptu performances, and staging your own kidnapping and heroic release, performing participants will quickly gain the tools necessary to shoot to local stardom.
