New ACTING ON CAMERA classes

A New Session of Acting On Camera classes with John B. Lowe starts May 28th.

We had not planned to run another session of acting classes until the fall, but we have had a number of requests, so Broccolo Creative will be offering a new 5 week session of Acting On Camera classes on Mondays from May 28 until June 25. These classes will be capped at 8 students each. (need a minimum of 6 students to cover costs)

The sessions will be 3.5 hours each, scheduled so that everyone performs in every class.
(Roughly - 30 minutes of instruction/ Q&A  with 3 hours of "guided" on-camera scene-work each session)

Both classes are designed for committed professional actors who are pursuing work in Film & TV.  (We may ask for a resume, if we don't already know a student's work.)

The schedule will be as follows
Monday afternoons 1:00 - 4:30 AOC-PROU 
(union members only)
Registration fee $250.00 + $12.50 GST = $262.50

Monday evenings 6:00 - 9:30 AOC-PRO 
(union and non-union) 
Registration fee $250.00 + $12.50 GST = $262.50 

There is more information about John B. Lowe and AOC classes on the Broccolo Creative Website (see links above). You can also email John B. with any questions you may have; johnb@broccolocreative.com

At the end of June, 2016, I left my position as School and Community Programs Director at Prairie Theatre Exchange.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at PTE School. I’m proud of the work I did at PTE School and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this excellent arts organization. It’s been a wonderful, rewarding decade.

While working at PTE, I was encouraged to maintain my acting and filmmaking career on a part-time basis. A number of theatre, film and TV opportunities have arisen that now require my full-time attention. I feel it’s best to make room for someone new to lead PTE School into the future.

I look forward to my continuing association with PTE, as an instructor and theatre artist for many years to come. I’d like to thank my PTE colleagues for your collaboration and support. Thank you to the many amazing instructing artists who generously share their creative talents with PTE School.

A special thank you to the PTE School students, for allowing me to share your exploration of theatre, and film and witness the development and expression of your talent and creativity.
