Actor Richard Kline Returns to Rahway to Teach Comedy Workshop


Rahway, NJ- Actor Richard Kline may have played a writing professor in the Theresa Rebeck play Seminar at the Union County Performing Arts Center’s Hamilton Stage in January, but in real life, his teaching skills are no act. Kline has taught multiple acting workshops in New York, and now he is bringing his Comedy Workshop to the Hamilton Stage. Students in the class will learn about the demands of comic versus dramatic acting as well as how to employ the key techniques of “set-up,” “punch,” “rhythm” and “timing.” There will be group “ensemble” acting exercises, as well as exercises in which students will be assigned to perform short scenes from theater and television. The class runs for four Saturdays in March (March 4, 11, 18 and 25) from 3 PM to 5 PM. Enrollment is $200.

Richard Kline’s most well-known role is Larry Dallas in the sitcom Three’s Company (1977-1984). On television, he has also appeared on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1976), The Love Boat (1979-1984), Matlock (1988), Punky Brewster (1988), Married with Children (1996), and That 70’s Show (1999). His well-known movies include Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) with Chris Farley and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007) with Adam Sandler and Kevin James. His experience in comedic roles speaks for itself.

Enrollment for Kline’s class at the Hamilton Stage can be purchased online at, over the phone by calling (732) 499-8226 or in person at the box office. Box office hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 AM to 5 PM, with extended hours of 11 AM to 8 PM on Thursdays.

Hamilton Stage is located in downtown Rahway at 360 Hamilton Street and is easily accessible to major roads and public transportation.
