Professional Development for Actors is a highly charged class for those who wish to develop skills in character development and script analysis. With exercises linked to scripted material, engaged artists work together in a challenging setting to create compelling and effective moments on stage. The goal is to prepare them for auditions and the deep work of a potential role. Eight weeks of class work lead to a showcase of scene and monologue work. An audition is required for entry into the class.
Students who have completed Company One Theatre’s program have then been cast in shows at companies around the city including The Huntington, Commonwealth Shakespeare, A.R.T., Lyric Stage, Actors Shakespeare Project, Zeitgeist, Shakespeare Now, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre, Wellfleet Harbor Actors’ Theatre. Many students are featured in our own productions as well.
