Spoon Lake Blues

Brady and Denis have found one easy solution to save their house from the bank: burglary. Then, one night Brady steals a picture of a woman who is everything he is not – educated, wealthy, upwardly mobile, and African-American. And with that, a brazen new caper is born… leaving no stones, stereotypes, or septic tanks unturned.

This show brings back Josh Tobiessen, a former Kendeda finalist. It’s the first time we’ve produced a play by a Kendeda alum and we’re pumped. See this show and you’ll be glad he’s back, too.

Note: This is a FRIDAY NIGHT. Tickets are $10. Quick review – cheaper and funnier than a movie & more impressive to your date. These tickets won’t last long.

*Offer based on availability. Not valid on previously purchased tickets.

March Audition Intensive with Caryn West

NEw Caryn yellow
cw space sign
Greetings!

THE MARCH AUDITION INTENSIVE now has two options!

Do it in one week (3 nights, 2 weekend afternoons)

Do in in 5 weeks (5 Tuesday evenings)

The first night is a free audit covering Script Analysis, Prep Skills and Foundations of Courage. We cover prepping for all genres, understanding your story function, tips on Office Tapings, the tricks to Cold Reading Workshops and detailed technique tools that CDs cannot teach in a night. CD Workshops are recommended networking but you can’t stretch and fail there.  Let us help you truly grow and be ready to show them your very best work!

In the continuing SCENE STUDY class you are guided by both a busy acting coach (Caryn)  and a highly skilled director (Jess Kubzansky ) tracking your most in-depth shot at growth.  Scene Study is the only place you can safely explore, without industry scrutiny or judgment,  pushing past limitations , acquiring new skills and the confidence for bigger risks in your work.

Jodie Bentley and Keith Urban of THE SAVVY ACTOR have put together the most thorough Career Manual I have ever seen, laying out actor business skills and marketing tools. I enjoy both its easy-to-read lay out and its treasure chest of steps to proactively show up in your career and stay on track. Loved it so much, I asked and received a $20 discount on the book to all on my actor list!  Their upcoming  “Crash Course MBA” Weekend’s  next LA  session is March 19th & 20 and they offer a big break on that too!  ( see BUSINESS DISCOUNTS at my site www.carynwest.com ).
