Yes, we are all in this together

Social Distancing doesn't have to mean Social Isolation

Let's keep creating, sharing and growing together. 

So what does this mean for your acting classes?

Laura's Honor Box acting classes are in full swing via ZOOM.  What does "Honor Box" mean? In essence, it means to pay what you can for each class. Some days that may mean the bare minimum and other days it may mean more than normal to make up times when you couldn't afford the class. The important thing at this time is to keep doing the work; keep the acting muscle warm and work on your craft.  Laura is here to help you do this safely and remotely via ZOOM. 

Classes are composed of Uta Hagen's Exercises, Scene Study, Monologues, Audition technique. Classes are Tuesday 2pm-5pm PST and 7pm-10pm PST. There are a few spots available in both classes at this time.


Contact Laura with any questions at:  Look forward to seeing you in class!
