An evening of exploration and performance

KALA presents The Actors Process, an Evening of Exploration and Performance, with Karen Bain,
February 16-17, at 7:30pm. Tickets at the door $10, doors open at 7pm.
In this unique performance presentation veteran North Coast theatre director Karen Bain brings actors to the stage to share a peek into the acting process. In a performance workshop setting, selected local actors worked under Bain, the objective to expand the actor’s creativity in making choices while inhabiting a character.
“Often, my objective is to help actors find truth in the moment. This workshop is about taking the next step, exploring and expanding the myriad choices available while in that creative state,” says Bain.
The evening will start with an interactive peek into the acting process, followed by scenes and monolog performances from David Mamet, Tennessee Williams, John Patrick Shanley, and Arthur Miller. Actors: Deac Guidi, Daric Moore, William Ham, Stephen Wood, Stacey Brown, Gigi Chadwick and Susi Brown.
