C1’s Professional Development for Actors program is designed to empower participants to be creative and collaborative, while developing their voice and building their skills. Like a skilled tradesperson, an actor needs to practice their craft, developing body, voice, and imagination.

C1 offers two classes that will activate, support, and challenge participants to achieve their artistic goals. Each eight week session also includes master classes led by Company One’s Artistic staff, and will culminate in a showcase performance. An audition is required for entry into both classes.

The Actor’s Workshop

  • – Build on a strong foundation to develop skills in character development and script analysis with instructors Rosalind Thomas-Clark and Victoria Marsh.
  • – Hone your craft through in-depth work on several monologues and scenes, preparing you for auditions and the deep work of a potential role
  • – Participants who have completed this class have been cast both here at C1 and at companies around the city, including American Repertory Theater, Actors’ Shakespeare Project, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, Fresh Ink Theatre, Front Porch Arts Collective, Huntington Theatre Company, and Lyric Stage Company

The Actor’s Toolkit

  • – Strengthen the foundation of your craft as an actor by working inside-out and outside-in, led by teaching artist Deen Rawlins (last seen on the C1 stage in Season 19’s Wig Out!)
  • – Drill down to the core of the text using imagination, voice, and body
  • – Build from a core inspiration through ensemble-based process of creation
