"Working with Richard was an incredible experience. His understanding of Shakespeare is phenomenal and he challenged my understanding of my characters, in both contemporary and classical monologues, to give them far more color and depth. Working with him is an opportunity you will not want to miss out on!"
Ryan Wagner - Musical Theater Major - Western Michigan University
THE CLASS: Following the principles created in The Gordon Hunt Acting Workshop, Richard teaches actors that they need to take responsibility for their own work. There are too many directors in film and Television (even stage!) that are more consumed with the technical aspects of production and don’t have a language to talk to actors. To that end, everyone is asked after they work how they felt it went so they can develop an outside sense of their work as well as an inside sense. Every class starts with core acting exercises that develop the craft of acting or auditioning skills. The bulk of the class is spent in the performance of fully memorized and rehearsed scenes or monologues, followed by a critique and maybe a reworking of the scene or monologue. This class is for serious high school students and adults. It should be noted, observing - with a skillful instructor, can be as beneficial as actual performance of a monologue or scene. Depending upon class size, not every student will present every week.
