Join the MMAS Academy this fall for an opportunity to take part in a comprehensive theater experience specifically devised for the adult performer. Adult Acting is designed to honor the individual and collective life experiences of its participants, while focusing on theater skills intended to improve memory, focus, speech, and flexibility. Each session will include theater warm-ups, improvisations, music, as well as monologue and scene study followed by group sharing and discussion. Learn techniques certain to improve speech, confidence, and presence under the deft leadership of Alice Springer and Judi Kotta. Both Alice and Judi have extensive backgrounds in acting, directing, and teaching in the greater New England region. Adult Acting is a wonderful venue to express yourself in a creative and collaborative environment.
