ENROLLMENT AND FEES

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

* Doors open at 6:00 PM, one hour before class begins to allow for rehearsal time.

This is available only to students enrolled in Advanced class.

 

* 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.

* Advanced 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. Advanced 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 teacher to let them know prior to attending. Contact Jamie at jamie@thecompanyactingstudio.com 

 

 

STUDENTS MUST BE WORKING ALWAYS IN ADVANCED 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.

CLASS STRUCTURE

This structure is subject to change. However this is generally the layout of each month.

WEEK ONE: Scene/Monologue work. Rehearsal and work through in front of the class. Those who do not arrive with a scene or monologue ready to work will be assigned one which you will become responsible for.

WEEK TWO: Audition work - will either be assigned or you will be asked to bring in personal auditions you have or recently have had.

WEEK THREE: Scene/Monologue work. Work through in front of the class with notes applied from week one.

WEEK FOUR: Varying exercises that teach the technique. Some scene and monologue work.

WHEN THERE IS A FIFTH WEEK: Either audition or exercises.

 

WHAT TO WEAR  WHAT TO BRING

 

* Wear comfortable non-restrictive clothing.

* Bring your notebook and writing utensils.

* Bring your material to work in class along with any necessary props or wardrobe you need.

* DO NOT BRING ANY PROP WEAPONS TO CLASS. We have standard prop weapons we approve for use and you can ask to use them in class. No fake or real weapons of any kind are allowed in the facility except for our prop weapons.

CLASS RULES

* No photographing, recording or video taping. Please do not post in class pictures or video on social media without the express permission of those in the pictures and videos. Please also respect each other's privacy by not posting specifics about experiences in the classroom of your fellow students without their permission.

* No use of cell phones in class. Please silence all devices and refrain from talking or texting during class time.

* DO NOT BRING ANY PROP WEAPONS TO CLASS. We have standard prop weapons we approve for use and you can ask to use them in class. No fake or real weapons of any kind are allowed in the facility except for our prop weapons.

EXTRA HELP WITH AUDITIONS

Lisina allows all enrolled Advanced 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.
