The week of Sept. 19 marks the beginning of acting and improvisation workshops and class series with local theatre veteran Sandra Rockman.

The popular “Truth in Acting” workshops are nine weeks long and cover improvisation, monologue and scene work. Class assignments are tailored to the experience level of the actor, whether novice or experienced.

Monday evenings, Sept. 19 to Nov. 14 from 7 – 9:30 p.m. or Tuesday daytime series, Sept. 20 – Nov. 15 from 1 – 3:30 p.m.. $200

“Instant Improv.” Just add actor! – A workshop series on Tuesday evenings for six weeks. We will progress through a series of exercises and games to sharpen our spontaneity in the classroom, the business meeting, on stage or in our unscripted lives. Prepare to surprise yourself and laugh a lot! Tuesday Sept. 20 – Oct. 25, 7 – 9 p.m. $120

“Saturday afternoon Instant Improv” will occur once a month for those whose schedules can’t commit to a series — come to one or more.

Sept. 24, Oct. 15, Nov. 19, Dec. 10. 1-5 p.m. $40

(discounts available for attending multiple Saturdays)

Rockman will be directing “Theatre Thursdays” (Oct. 27, Nov. 3 and Nov. 10) — two staged readings and An Actors’ Showcase — during Paul Emery’s Nevada City Live series at the Nevada Theatre. “Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz and “Circle Mirror Transformatio”n by Annie Baker will feature popular local actors. The showcase will highlight the best scene-work and monologues with actors from Sandra’s recent classes and a short satire by local Jeffrey Mason, “Election Night.”
