Jim Cady's Acting Class


Open to all students who take the craft of acting seriously and want to be grounded in technique. This workshop will cover the technique developed by David Mamet and William H. Macy and outlined in the book A Practical Handbook for the Actor and in David Mamet’s book True and False: Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor. (It is not necessary to purchase the books.)

Through exercises and improvisation, the student will investigate Physical Action, The Truth of the Moment, Script Analysis, Scene Preparation and actual scene work and all the tools needed to successful fulfillment of character. The workshop is designed to take the mystery out of acting and bring the craft down to simple, easy to follow rules that are rewarding and fun.
