A very popular and exciting class, the Acting Workshop fulfills the needs of members who might have had a genuine interest in the theater at one time but chose to pursue other careers. It also affords an opportunity for others to explore a totally new avenue of expression. We have a very comprehensive acting program comprised of basic acting techniques using acting exercises, improvisation, scene study and monologues. The class includes lessons in observation, concentration, characterization and stage movement. While learning the basic approach to acting, the class helps members feel more comfortable in front of an audience and, as it turns out, is also a lot of fun! The Acting Workshop culminates in May of each year with a performance for the Quest community.
In addition, since its inception 25 years ago, Quest has offered a course called “Great Plays,” through which, once every two weeks, Quest members are provided a unique opportunity to direct, perform in and discuss a variety of theater pieces.
