Acting the Extremes

This 1-day class will teach you how to master many of the “extreme” characters you may come across in your career!

Actors are called upon to tackle all kinds of challenging material. How would you approach a Disney Villain? Or a disaster drama where you’re in severe danger? How about the next Mother of Dragons?

In this class, Howard will teach you how to avoid common traps involved with playing the extremes. Each actor will be assigned unique material – there’s no one-size-fits-all! Each extreme has a specific lesson. Learn the right ways to approach an extreme role without losing your authenticity or becoming a stereotype.

Some extremes that may be covered:

Supervillian
Sitcom “Stereotypes”
Disney Esque roles 
Schizophrenia / Mental Challenges 
Serial Killer / Horror 
Royalty 
High Fantasy/ Mythical Characters 
Hostage Situation 
Natural Disaster Victim
Southern Belle  
Organized Crime/ Thug/ Henchmen  
Old Hollywood 
And more… 

How it works:
Each performing participant will be cast in a scene and required to film a self-tape of the scene prior to class.

Please note: Participants are expected to follow specific self-taping instructions and should be prepared to re-tape prior to class if necessary and asked to do so (with further instruction).

* Upon registration, please make sure to communicate if there are any “extreme” characters or situations that you are not comfortable playing for this class. Participants may be asked to submit a resume, headshot and their age range for casting purposes.

Date: Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 6pm (PST)

Cost for Performing Participants: $175

Cost for Observing Participants: $50
