Northport Reader's Theater
Northport One-Act Play Festival
We are accepting submissions for our monthly play readings beginning again in October.

Jeff Bennett will be teaching a Fundamentals Class at Regina Schneider’s Take2 Actors Studio in Huntington this summer--eight consecutive Wednesday night sessions, 7:30 – 9:30, beginning July 7. 
 COURSE TITLE : ‘ALL I GOTTA DO IS…ACT NATURALLY’
Email him at bennettjeff549@gmail.com.
COURSE DESCRIPTION
"All I gotta do is...act naturally." Sounds easy, right? Most of us move, talk, and behave naturally on life's stage every day of our lives (even when we're not speaking the truth!). Then why is it that many beginning actors, faced for the first time with a well-written script, so often fail to bring that same quality of "naturalness" to the words they're uttering, whether read or memorized? They fall into what I like to call "the acting voice" -- an exaggerated theatrical tone, darting rhythms, and swooping intonations--maybe in an over-anxious effort to impress. This course is dedicated to the death of that "acting voice". We'll learn how to "take it off the page", to seek truth and believability in the words we speak, to create movement that is organic, to listen onstage, to express wants and emotions based on what we receive from our fellow actors.
Class Sessions: Eight consecutive Wednesday evenings, July 7th - Aug 25. Cost: $325
