Taking a Class at The Actors’ Gang
Our adult classes are a way for us to introduce our signature way of working to others. Based in the belief that important stories have important states of emotion, we work toward creating pure moments of truth on stage, using ensemble movement, generosity, trust, and emotional honesty. In the course of the eight-week class, the students are introduced to stock characters from the Commedia dell’Arte. Developed over the last 37 years by founding Artistic Director, Tim Robbins, and Co-Artistic Director, Cynthia Ettinger, with roots in the Théâtre du Soleil, Grotowski, Viewpoints, punk rock and popular culture. Our signature technique is used in all of our productions and outreach programs.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend. People will be seen in a group and the audition will consist of movement exercises and group work. Therefore, you do not need to prepare a monologue or any material but you do need to be prepared to play and stay the evening. This is not a traditional audition so have fun! Please come in clothes and shoes you can move in.
The audition will be held at the theater. The address is 9070 Venice Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232. If you are searching for it using a smart phone, search for Media Park. We are the only building in Media Park.
You can park in the Trader Joes parking structure across from us on Culver Blvd (the first two hours are free) or you can park on Venice Blvd. (2 hour street parking).
You must bring a hard copy of your headshot and resume to the auditions.
