Adult Scene Study

Instructor: David Berberian

As actors, we all have an instrument that we must constantly strengthen and develop. 

Scene Study is comparable to an athlete going to the gym or a musician devoting time to rehearsal.

Participating actors will analyze, rehearse, and perform scenes and monologues with guidance and critique from the instructor. The goal is to provide a safe environment for exploration, and to give specific constructive feedback to help each individual actor improve.

For the first class, students will be asked to have a prepared scene or monologue to present. Subsequent classes will focus on partnered scene work.

Open to experienced actors.

Classes will be held IN-PERSON once a week, and will conclude with a public Showcase Performance.

Check back for updates on the next session.


I enjoyed my experience, even if the part you gave me drove me a bit off my center.

But that's why I was there.

Thanks so much... RedBird should keep doing these - no one is doing these in the area!!!

As a non-professional "person of the stage," if you will, I felt the class was accommodating, allowed me to stretch a bit, and yet also seemed apropos for those in the squad that had more experience.

We shared a few laughs, stressed a bit (in a productive way!), met some great folks and connected with Redbird and their mission.  So, many wins there.
