What we're about

The Actors Place (TAP) is a gym for actors. We are not an acting class, but rather a place for people with acting training and/or those who are pursuing an acting career to meet and practice our craft.

WHO IS TAP FOR?

TAP is for people who already have some foundation in acting. This means you:

• Have taken some acting classes in the recent past

• Are currently taking classes

• Are already working/auditioning as an actor.

• You are already a professional actor looking to practice your craft.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We have three options:

(1) Drop-in $20

(2) 5 drop-in Card $50

(3) 10 drop-in Card $90

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT A MEETUP?

Every session is a little different, because we are always trying to do different exercises. In a typical session here is what we would generally do.

• Improv games and warm-ups (15minutes)

• Scene and partner distribution (10 minutes)

• Exercises (10-15mintes)

• Performances (40-50minutes)

• Exercises (10-15mintes)

• Performances (40-50 minutes)

• Exercises (10-15mintes)

• Performances (40-50 minutes)

• End

WHAT TYPE OF ACTING DO YOU DO?

Every meetup will be different, but here are some examples of the content we cover.

• Auditioning

• Acting from basics to advanced

• Scene Analysis

• Improv

• Acting for TV & Film

WHO IS THE TEACHER?

There is none! Rather in each meetup we have an experienced actor (with years of experience) who facilitates activities. We also have feedback and coaching, but this meetup is more of a compliment to classes not a substitute. The idea behind our meetup is that this is a place to practice, prepare for auditions, network and of course have fun! The role of the host is to facilitate activities, provide coaching and manage time. To make it even more valuable different meetups will have different facilitators so that our attendants can have exposure to different point of views, energies and acting styles.

CAN I COME TO A MEETUP IF I DON'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE?

We welcome everyone, but it is better to contact us in advance if this is you. The way our meetups run requires some understanding of acting. If you have no experience in acting, but are curious, have a passion and/or don't know how else to get started in the world of acting and would like to attend, please CONTACT US (http://www.theactorsplace.org/contact.html)first.

CAN I AUDIT A CLASS

Because we are not a class, it is not really the environment to audit, BUT we are very welcoming and it is easy to participate. If you have questions or aren't sure to attend, please just contact us through meetup.

DO I HAVE TO PREPARE A SCENE?

It is always better when you come prepared. We do not require you to prepare a scene, but we have a huge database of scenes for you to work on our website (http://www.theactorsplace.org/). If you want to make the most of your time. Prepare a scenes and make sure to bring an extra copy for a partner. You are also welcome to bring your own scenes, auditions or acting class work to TAP.
