WCT Scene/Monologue Study Open For Enrollment Now

Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT), which launched a successful slate of acting classes last fall, is accepting applications now for Scene and Monologue Study, a deeper study of the craft of acting. Designed for intermediate to advanced actors, it will be taught by AEA/SAG-AFTRA actor and director Bob Rogerson, best known for his roles in several popular Nickelodeon TV series.

Rogerson’s classes offer tailored individuated instruction, addressing specific issues based on each actor’s strengths and needs.

Classes meet Mondays for eight weeks, February 26 - April 16th, from 7:00-10:30 pm. Students will have the option of continuing the study through three more sessions in 2018 - late spring, summer and fall.

Rogerson has been teaching acting for more than 20 years and has performed in over 100 productions, more than 80 under the auspices of Actors’ Equity Association. He holds an MFA from The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting in Washington, DC.

He integrates an eclectic mix of traditional and modern acting methods drawing from early and late Stanislavski as well as physical acting, voice and ear training.

“It’s never ‘one-size fits all.’ The goal is to identify and apply appropriate choices grounded in the text in order to create a complete living, breathing character,” says Rogerson.
 
The response to classes has been enthusiastic. Rebecca Werner, an NYU Tisch School graduate currently employed in sound engineering for theater, says: “The class definitely lived up to my expectations. Bob is very well qualified, and gave each student individual attention, making the bar unique to each student.”

Actor Christine Fonsale who has performed leading roles in numerous productions for over 10 years, credits the class with preparing her for an audition for a professional theater company, which resulted in her joining the ensemble.  Says Fonsale, “The best kind of teacher is the type who has vast knowledge and experience and loves to share it. That’s Bob. He is so passionate about acting and teaching acting, that he is completely infectious.”

Classes take place in WCT’s black box performance space at 23 Water Street in Ossining.

Class size is very limited; early registration is suggested.

What have they done to my city?

Dear readers: Appearing on September 13, 2012, this column was my very first for The Somers Record. Because it captures the horror and deep personal feelings of this never-to-be-forgotten event, I have rerun it each year since in memory of our fallen heroes, family and friends who perished that day and who are still sacrificing their lives years later from 9/11 related illnesses.

Cookies and hooky

There’s a chill in the air, a tart briskness that seems like you could shatter it with a hammer. Most people would reach for a pullover, but that chill causes me to break into a sweat. Even after all these years, the first time I feel Jack Frost nipping at my nose, an abject panic sets in and I start trying to think up excuses for why I didn’t do homework that was due 44 years ago.

How it was and how it is

It seems to me that we have gone from the warmth of the 20th century to the cold of the 21st.

I’m not talking about wars or politics, but books and telephones and newspapers and board games as opposed to texting and emailing and electronic games and the anonymity of the computer itself.  

People today speak quickly as if they want to get over it fast; they text in acronyms, ...

I Never Met a Musical Like Meta-Musical ‘Urinetown’

On the face of it, the conceit behind award-winning stage musical “Urinetown” seems absurd: Citizens are required to pay for the privilege of relieving themselves at public urinals.

To baby boomers, charging people to use public restrooms is neither absurd nor unthinkable. True, there were no coin-operated urinals when we were young, but there were stalls that required a dime to be ...

Do or Diet

Most people I know gain weight over the winter. Just like polar bears, they eat for warmth and hide their weight under a layer of fur or, in this case, velour tracksuits. But I’m different (so what else is new?). I tend to gain all my weight during the summer when we travel, and go to lots of barbecues and picnics, and drink ginormous, high-calorie slushy drinks to cool off.

By the time ...
