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.

The Feline Night Stalker

Shades of the late Darren McGavin! If you liked the ‘70s horror shows on TV, you knew him as Kolchak, crime reporter, in the series “The Night Stalker.”

It seems that I have a night stalker living with me. My kitty, Bonnie, had her 18th birthday in April and I’ve noticed some subtle changes in her behavior. Up until that time, Bonnie would sleep on my bed at night. She ...

Hitting the road, Part II

Welcome back to our little trip across these great United States. We left off somewhere on Route 90, heading out of Cleveland.

So glad to have you following along, and frankly, if you’re following I’m just glad you’re not the cops. On the way to Chicago I found myself driving 70 miles an hour, which made the police quite angry, since the speed limit was 75. 

When ...

Sabotaged by the DMV

After living in Manhattan for the last few years, my grandson, Chris, and my wonderful grand-daughter-in-law, Silvia, have decided to move back to his hometown of Westfield, N.J. Silvia has just returned from a four-day visit with her parents in Hong Kong and they are bunking with my daughter, Lisa, while preparing their new home. Because they now have a daily commute to the city, I decided to ...

Do it badly!

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly, at least to start. 

As a recovering perfectionist, I have learned to get started on a project even if I don’t have all the pieces together. Sometimes just puttering, tinkering or moving the parts around will help me sort out my brain enough to give me an idea of how to tackle a project.  

I can’t tell you how many times ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...
