In this two-week Method Acting workshop, class participants will gain firsthand exposure to Lee Strasberg’s world renowned acting technique and learn to find truth and authenticity in expression. Taught by LSTFI Method Acting instructor Dig Wayne, the workshop will provide students with foundational Method Acting training with additional classes in Character Work and Acting on Camera, allowing students to understand and apply the techniques they are learning. The workshop will culminate in a two-day Master Class with David Lee Strasberg, open to the public.


WEEK 1: July 15-19

Method Acting with Dig Wayne
Day 1 and 2

The first part of each Method Acting class begins with Lee Strasberg’s relaxation technique and then moves to his sequence of sensory exercises which train the actor’s concentration, ability to respond to imaginary objects, and organic expression. The second part of the Method Acting class is devoted to improvisation, scene work, and monologues where students applied what they have learned in the exercise work to fulfil the demands of a play and the creation of a role.

Character Work with Dig Wayne 
Day 3, 4 and 5

This class guides the students as they gain a deeper grasp of the complexities of a character by examining the dramatic elements of the material. The goal is to move beyond conventional choices and use Method Acting techniques to develop a more artistic and authentic characterization of the scenes.
This class included script analysis, rehearsal procedures, and improvisation. ​Course material focused on contemporary plays, film, and television.

*each class is 4hours

WEEK 2: July 22-26

Method Acting and Camera Work with Dig Wayne

The second week will focus mostly on camera work.  Acting for Film and TV will provide students with the required skills, fundamentals and experience that an actor needs in order to successfully perform in front of a camera.
