Monologue and Scene Workshops
“The Actors' Entrance” workshops are held every Tuesday evening, from 7 to 9pm in the Player’s Theater Education Room just off the lobby of the Reif Center in Grand Rapids.
These workshops are designed as a safe place for actors at all levels of experience to come and polish their skills and work at their craft through the performance of monologues and short scenes with fellow participants, followed by group discussion under the supervision of Executive Director Steve Jaeger.
No matter what your skill or experience level, gender identity or physical ability all participants will be treated with respect, and your choice of performance material will not be judged or censored. The Players wish to ensure that everyone who participates always feels that this will be a place for free artistic expression.
Parts of the workshop will be devoted to discussion of the various schools of acting, as well as techniques that are commonly used among actors, both on stage and in film to achieve their goals. Since all actors will be choosing their own material to perform, participation in the workshops will be limited to those aged 17 and older, and since all Covid 19 restrictions will apply, masks will be required and the number of persons allowed at each session will be limited so all are encouraged to sign up early.
