Announcing 2024 Beginner’s Acting Classes I and II, for older adults


Beginner’s I is for people who have had no experience acting for theater (or, no experience since middle school!)

Beginner’s II is for people with some experience and/or training in the theater. Participants must present a one-minute memorized monologue for the first class. Please read carefully before applying.

• Classes will probably begin mid-May and run until the end of June. We will know more very soon.

Classes will be taught by Anne Sandoe (see below) in a supportive and comfortable environment meant to encourage judgment-free exploration of one’s creative self. Lessons will include exercises in observation, imagination, voice, movement, and basic stagecraft.

What: each module is six classes of two hours each. Classes are limited to 10 participants.
When: beginning in May 2024
Where: Westview Church, 6710 Arapahoe in Boulder
Cost: $120 for the six sessions
