ACTRA Ottawa Presents:

ACTRA Gym Nights

Hone your skills and master your craft!

In the performing arts just as in business or sport, it is important to keep up to date and in shape. Artists paint every day, musicians practice, and professionals train. In a business where it might be weeks or even months between jobs, one of the biggest problems for actors can be keeping their talents sharp.

The ACTRA Gym Night offers you a forum once a week in which to practice your craft alongside your peers with a facilitator to guide and direct you. You are responsible for working together to rehearse pieces so that on the Gym Night you are prepared and ready to go. This helps ensure that you remain committed to the work and the practice. In the end, performing your pieces in front of peers helps to ensure that you accustom yourself to auditioning and performance experiences. Accepting suggestions from the facilitator helps you get used to taking direction. Participants are also encouraged to bring audition material to work on with the group prior to your auditions. Your input is encouraged and will help shape the sessions and our future programs.

ACTRA Ottawa is offering this unique opportunity to draw on the talents of facilitators – Ryan Browne and Jocelyn Forgues
