Adult Acting (AA)

random image

For those of you who are interested, we provide free acting workshops for adults—college-age and up.  Offered at no cost, but if you have time to put up posters, count fliers, organize costumes for us, etc—just do those things as you can — We'll send out emails announcing our need, and if you can help, please do. It's a chance for beginners to seasoned actors to get together to learn more about acting, auditioning, the rehearsal process, monologue preparation and whatever the student has questions about.  Betsy Bisson is the Artistic/Education Director here and has 20 + years’ experience teaching acting. During the summer, we step it back a bit and workshops are offered once per month on specific topics.  Let’s face it, summer is a busy time and trying to do anything on a weekly basis with everything else going on is tough.  We also offer some week-long evening classes adults can enroll in too (Improv in June & Dance for Musicals in July) listed on the website.  We call it AA (cause no one can give you grief for going to an AA meeting) and it meets on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:15ish pm.  The scheduling is dependent on building availability and the teacher's schedule.  Classes are held at SCCT Headquarters - 153 Augusta St, Greenville, SC 29601 Be sure to come to the side door!
