Howard Meyer’s Acting Program — Free Open House March 28th to Offer Sneak Preview of Spring 2016 Acting Classes

For adults and youngsters who want to learn about acting classes Howard Meyer’s Acting Program (“HM Acting”) on Wednesday, March 28 will host a free, no-obligation Open House to introduce tweens, teens and adults to acting classes offered through the program. HM Acting is an affiliate of professional company Axial Theatre.

HM Acting’s spring 2018 semester begins Wednesday, April 4. There is no requirement to sign up for classes at the Open House.

Open House attendees will have the opportunity to meet the acting faculty, sample what happens in acting classes, plus meet, mingle and ask questions of acting faculty members. Howard Meyer, the program’s founder, head instructor, and artistic director of Axial Theatre, will discuss how classes and workshops operate.

“If not now, when?” says Mr. Meyer. “So many people long to get on stage or write for the theatre, but stop themselves by thinking ‘I don’t have time,’ or ‘I’m not the right age,’ or ‘I might get stage fright.’ They could be missing a life-changing experience if they don’t give themselves a chance – and it might unleash their creative expression or perhaps lead to a career change.”

HM Acting also is a popular place for those with acting credentials who may have taken a hiatus or want to reinvigorate their craft and technique.

HM Acting faculty members Rachel Jones and Catherine Banks will be on hand at the Open House to explain the multiple study options for various age groups and experience levels, which are accommodated in Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Master classes. There also are performance workshops, private coaching, and special one-day voice, movement and other acting disciplines that the program offers. Refreshments will be served.

Aspiring actors 10-17 years old should arrive at 5:30 p.m.; those 18 and older should arrive at 7 p.m. The Open House will be held in the Community Room of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 8 Sunnyside Ave., Pleasantville 10570.

Howard Meyer’s Acting Program fall classes begin Wednesday, April 4th. Beginner Adult (age 18 up) classes run for six weeks. Cost is $245, and there is a 12- week option for $395. Intermediate, Advanced and Master classes are offered by invitation for students previously enrolled in the program.
