About the Show
Charlie’s shyness renders him helpless in conversation – so when a friend covers for him by telling the other guests in a rural Georgia fishing lodge that he is an exotic foreigner and speaks no English, Charlie ends up hearing more – MUCH more – than he should – and the hilarity begins!

Tickets range from $23 to $33, with Student & Senior discounts available for all performances.

Thanks to Our Season Sponsors!

A Special Offer to GET Patrons from Atlanta Ballet!
Atlanta Ballet presents
THE MAN IN BLACK: ALSO FEATURING 1ST FLASH AND MOMENTS OF DIS

James Kudelka’s The Man in Black delivers imaginative choreography over hits and hidden gems by rockabilly legend Johnny Cash. Jorma Elo’s ultra-modern 1st Flash astonishes with speed and athleticism and demonstrates why he was singled out as a “talent to follow” in The New York Times’ Year in Review. In Moments of Dis, Atlanta-based choreographer Juel Lane examines the implications of the prefix “dis”: Sometimes we become disillusioned, disrespectful, or dishonest with our personal choices in life. When we start to discern what is the truth, we can truly explore and manage our psyche.

Southside Theatre Guild presents ‘A Raisin In The Sun’

Southside Theatre Guild presents ‘A Raisin In The Sun’

Tuesday, February 7, 2012 – 2:35pm
Submitted by Michael Boylan
The cast of Southside Theatre Guild's production of "A Raisin In The Sun." Photo/Special.
Southside Theatre Guild will present Lorraine Hansberry’s play “ A Raisin In The Sun,’ for three weekends starting this Thursday with an Opening Night Gala.
The play, set on Chicago’s South Side, focuses on three generations of the Younger family. The family is due to receive an insurance check from the deceased Mr. Younger’s life insurance policy and several members of the family have different ideas about what to do with the money. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, trust and love among the family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
“A Raisin in the Sun” was the first play written by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway and was nominated for four Tony Awards in 1960. It featured Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee among others. The original Broadway cast starred in the film in 1961, also written by Hansberry. It was produced on Broadway again in 2004 and featured Phylciai Rashad, Sean Combs, Bill Nunn and Sanaa Lathan among others.
The production at Southside Theatre Guild features DeKalb County residents Jay Michael Isbell and Adrienne Harris and Walter Lee and Beneatha Younger and Fulton County residents Kristi Garrett (Ruth Younger), Javin Jordan (Travis Younger), Cheryl Evette Booker (Lena “Mama” Younger), Jason Louder (Joseph Asagai), Herman Spearman (George Murchison) and Timothy Aaron Styles (Bobo). The show is directed by Jim Abert.
Performances will run at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays Feb. 9-12, 17-19 and 24-26. Tickets are $8 for children 12 and under for all shows. They are $14 in advance and $15 at the door for adults during the first weekend and $16 in advance and $17.50 at the door all other weekends.

Haber Film/TV Audition Intensive

Taught by Della Cole
This Intensive course is designed for trained actors who have some audition experience.

As professional actors, we often audition and work on projects that don’t necessarily challenge the full spectrum of our talents. You may be comfortable with industrials, commercials, and voice-over but fall apart when you audition for a film. With the increase of film and television coming to Georgia, now more than ever, Atlanta talent needs to be ready for Hollywood auditions.

In this Intensive, using the “Haber Audition Technique”, actors work with film and television scripts, learning how to nail the audition in a limited amount of time. The focus is on the nuts and bolts of breaking down a scene, including relationship, intention, history, opening and closing beats, core and masking. Using the skills you learn will greatly improve your audition skills. This valuable cold-reading technique works.

VOICE-OVER “COPY GRASP” WORKSHOP

with Voice-Over AGENT SALLY NEAL

of Houghton Talent
Sally Neal, voiceover agent of Houghton Talent has this to say: “A voice is just a voice until you add personality and a true understanding of what you are saying and why…  It’s the reason producers will choose one voice over another.”

Break down the copy you are given. Look at it from the producer’s and writer’s point of view. Figure out who the target audience is. Determine why your style/voice has been asked to audition the copy. Then deliver the script in the most effective way to promote interest in the product. If you do it, you will book the jobs!

Come and learn this important information!

 

ONE DAY ONLY, 1-3pm, Saturday, February 11 –  Only $99!

Limited to 15 (or time will be extended)

Call 404-499-9996 OR register online.

 

  yourACT Superstar

Faye McQueen

Tackles the Superbowl!  

From Faye:

I will appear in a Superbowl commercial which is a promo for “America’s Got Talent” with Howard Stern. I play an NBC Executive.
Also, I recently appeared on the new daytime show, “The Revolution” as myself, representing women in their fifties speaking on breast health dated January 18th.

[Editor’s note:  And that’s not all!]

 

I was also upgraded from an extra to a prinipal in the latest “Bourne” film entitled “Bourne Legacy”? to be releasesd later this year. I play a TSA agent beside Rachel Weitz and Ed Norton.

 

All of this is possible beacuse of the jump start in my acting training that I received from Della Cole and Bob Harter at yourACT Acting Studios. I moved back to NY and within a year I became SAG and AFTRA. Thanks for the love, hard knocks and most of all, “The Truth” about acting.

Love you guys!

Many, many thanks to Stephen Caudill who worked tirelessly to produce the all-NEW yourACT website!!

 

 

Take some time to surf the new site and check it out.  There is a  section called “The Buzz” where you will find quotes from Talent (maybe even YOU if you answered our recent survey) and from Industry Pros about their experiences at yourACT.

 

Missed the Survey?  That’s OK.  There is a link there to send us an email with your quote and headshot.  We’ll be rotating out the quotes from time, so if you sent one in for the survey and don’t see it there, don’t despair.  Eventually we’ll get around to you.

 

One example:

 

On par with my New York and California training.  And with so much laughter! I highly recommend yourACT – 100% professional- they know what they’re doing.
Mary K Shaw

 

We were absolutely blown away by the tremendous response and the wonderful things you had to say.  It makes what we do here all worthwhile.  A heartfelt thank you to ALL of you!

 
 
Make the Most of Your Auditions

With Shira Sandler

During this 6 week course, you will learn how to strengthen your auditions and further your career as an actor. You will work on TV and film sides from past and presently shooting productions as well as cold reads. Working Casting professional, Shira Sandler, will give you personal feedback and answer all of your questions on auditioning, the business of acting, and what Casting Directors really think. Each class will be broken into two segments: working on your feet and questions/discussion.

 

Shira Sandler has amassed many professional credits in theatre, film and TV casting over the past seven years. This was a natural progression from her total immersion in acting and the performing arts since she was a small child. A graduate of Bard College, Shira received her B.A. in Theatre.

While living in New York City, she worked with such casting offices as: The Manhattan Theatre Club (on and off Broadway productions), ABC Primetime Television, Nickelodeon, Grant Wilfley Casting and Ellen Chenoweth. She has also assisted and led the casting on numerous independent films and shorts.
Beyond casting, Shira has managed high profile talent on both the East and West Coasts.

Upon moving to Atlanta over a year ago, Ms. Sandler joined Fincannon and Associates as a Casting Associate.  Her many projects have included Joyful Noise, Drop Dead Diva, Necessary Roughness, The Goats, and GI JOE 2. She looks forward to her upcoming seasons work on Drop Dead Diva and Necessary Roughness, as well as the many other projects that will soon begin production in Atlanta.

 

VOICE-OVER DEMO WORKSHOP

 

This 6-week workshop is dedicated to producing a professionally edited 60 second Voice-Over demo, suitable to upload to your agent’s website, mail to production companies, or to submit by email as an MP3.

This comprehensive Voice-Over workshop is led by Grammy winning producer and engineer, Matt Still.

 

Matt is a Grammy winning producer & engineer with over 20 years of experience. He is a life-long musician who started studying classical piano at the age of four and could read music before he could read a book.

Along with working in the music industry, Matt also lends his talents to the world of post-production. He has recorded and mixed over a thousand radio and TV commercials throughout his career. Clients like Coca Cola, Nike, Mercedes, Cartoon Network, and The Georgia Lottery have all raved about Matt’s work.
