Harold Foundation with Johnny Meeks

In this class we'll focus on two foundational concepts of the Harold: 2 person scene work (the first beat) and initiating with bulletproof ideas from your opening. We'll aim to get rid of trying to find footing in the second beat instead of playing game. We'll do the work of setting up the Harold in this class, so that the rest is just pure play. Work less, play more. 

Students will perform in one class performance at UCB Theatre Sunset.  

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #232

All tuition payments include a $35 non-refundable registration processing fee.
