ENROLLMENT AND FEES

 

* Payments are due by the first class of the month. Failure to pay results in termination of your agreement and loss of your spot in class.

* Fees are $150.00 per month. CLICK HERE to pay your tuition.

* Remember, you are contracted to continue classes and paying for class unless you remove yourself from the class list by informing the studio by the 15th of the month prior to the one you wish to stop.

 

 

CLASS TIME

* Classes are three hours. 7:00-10:00 on Wednesday and Thursday. Door locks at 7:10 PM. Be on time. We do not allow students to leave early. Please be prepared to stay for the entire class.

 

* You are assigned a "primary night" solely to make sure we can accommodate the amount of scenes and monologues looking to work each class. You get both nights for your tuition, however we will assign the primary upon enrollment. It will come into play if more pieces than we have time for want to be worked on, we will defer to the "primary night." 

* Master Class students may attend any of the Adult Program classes at the school free of charge, but must abide by the structure and rules of that class regarding participation, lateness and behavior. Master Class students are not given priority to work in class over the primary students in the class and are at times expected to assist when they attend. You must contact the office to let us know prior to attending. You can find a complete schedule of all classes on the website.

 

* All Level Workshops are part of the training for all adults of all levels and you do not need to let us know when you are coming to those. All students work in those classes. They are held once per month on a Saturday. Check the calendar.

 

STUDENTS MUST BE WORKING ALWAYS IN MASTER CLASS.

STUDENTS MUST ALWAYS HAVE AT LEAST ONE SCENE AND ONE MONOLOGUE THAT THEY ARE WORKING ON. 

* These pieces can be from a play or a film. No television material please. (Television work will be brought in by Lisina at times when working on audition skills.)

* The play must be read and understood and the student must have a copy of the play on them.

* If the student can read the film the piece is from this is preferable to watching the film. If they cannot gain a copy of the film and have not seen the film, we recommend they do not see the film, but if they already have that is okay. 

* Monologues can be no more than a minute and a half.

* Scenes can be no more than 3 minutes.

* When getting up in class, students should already be working on the piece somewhat. 

* Students should be ready at any time to be called up in class to work on something.

 

EXTRA HELP WITH AUDITIONS

Lisina allows all enrolled Master Class students to send her tapes of auditions for review. She cannot guarantee viewing and notes but will always do her best to help. Always send the sides and breakdown in addition to the tape and give as much time as possible. Rough tapes are absolutely acceptable. 

 

There are no extra fees for this extra help.

Any other coaching assistance beyond what is offered above is subject to Lisina's regular session fees. 

 

PRESENTATION (Check back for the scheduling of 2019 presentation)

Presentations are held every other month.

Master Class students are expected to present relatively regularly. Work is done in class and when we decide it should be presented we schedule it.

Guest auditors attend presentation and give evaluations of the work.

A lecture by Lisina follows every presentation.

The entire school is invited to presentations.

You are welcome to invite family and friends. It is free.

There is a social time following the lecture with food.

SHOWCASES (If we do a 2019 showcase, we will update students.)

Industry showcases are held occasionally.

There are 24 available spots.

10 slots are given to Master Class students free of charge.

If more than 10 MC students are interested, we choose based on need and how many showcases they have already participated in previously.
