"The Seasoned Actor Workshop"
We Create, and Elevate.
The Seasoned Actor Workshop is a recurring acting and audition intensive, designed to elevate the actors' work and streamline their preparation process. Convening once weekly for a four-week period, Georgia leads an intimate group of actors along the path of working smarter, not harder, by helping actors tap into their own unique sensibilities, ensuring present and powerful auditions. The Seasoned Actor Workshop focuses on both the crafting and business side of acting.
For the first class only, each actor must select and prepare their own material; the creative discoveries each actor makes in class one help to inform the mock-audition material assigned for class two, and so on. Alternately, actors may always opt to use class time to prepare material for any actual upcoming auditions.
Assigned material consists of comedic and dramatic scenes from plays, films, and TV shows, as well as monologues, songs, and any other material that's requested and/or beneficial. In any two-person scenes, actors will act as off-screen readers for each other. Each actor will have the opportunity to work in any and all performance mediums throughout the course, and all on-camera work will be filmed and shared with the class, for educational purposes.
Those with significant acting experience and training are encouraged to enroll in the Advanced group, while those who are newer to the biz and have had less formal acting training are encouraged to enroll in the Beginner group, when such workshops are available. More often, Georgia prefers to lead "all-level" workshops, as she believes strongly that advanced actors can learn just as much from beginners as beginners can learn from more experienced actors.
While a "seasoned actor" typically refers to one with ample experience, The Seasoned Actor Workshop gets its name from a comparison made between Georgia's coaching and a chef's cooking: guided by intuition, exploration, precision, and education, Georgia skillfully detects the "missing ingredients" in each performance, and seasons each actor accordingly. Any student who has completed one four-week segment is welcome to re-enroll in another, as each workshop is as unique as the actors involved. For this reason, many students opt to take the workshop more than once, forming a supportive and talented community of The Seasoned Actor Workshop alumni.
