Adult Classes (18 and over)
At the Andi Matheny Acting Studios, our goal is to offer the highest quality training possible to prepare actors for a career in the thriving southeast TV and film industry. We offer three sessions a year for Adults 18 and older: Fall, Winter and Spring. Fall and Winter are 12 classes per session (11 weeks of classes plus Scene O Rama, our informal showcase to end the session.) Spring is full of surprises and we may offer alternative classes and schedules - stay connected to us on our email list or on our Facebook page for all class announcements!
Class curriculum includes the Acting Core Exercises specific to our training program, scene study and improvisation. We specialize in an accelerated method to get actors to connect quickly and truthfully to scripts. And we've cultivated a supportive environment where actors feel safe to discover and use their own uniqueness in their art.
Students new to our studio start in our Acting Core Exercise classes. The ACE classes give new actors an immediate understanding of the authenticity required for TV and film, and give more experienced actors a quicker way to connect to a script and a greater chance of booking an audition.
Returning students continue their growth with our Scene Study classes which combine improvisation, advanced acting exercises and continued scene study for actors to work on all facets of their craft. Actors are encouraged to choose their own scripts to work on roles that they could easily be cast in, to roles that challenge and stretch their abilities - and casting opportunities!
Andi Matheny teaches the Monday Night Master Class (this class is invitation only - for more info on the Master Class click here) Scene Study Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday and Wednesday night classes.
Enrollment requirements for NEW STUDENTS: Agent or actor referral. Age 18 and older. If no referral available, contact us for a private interview. We may also request a monologue on tape or a video of your previous work. Do not sign up until you have scheduled an interview! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
