Acting Course Weekend Workshop
w/ Kathleen Francis
September 9th thru September 11th
Kathleen Francis has an impressive resume and has coached actors for 30 years using a very specific technique. Trained directly by one of the world’s most respected acting coaches, Sanford Meisner, Kathleen brings her rich training to Sedona and Cottonwood under the auspices of Pure PR Talent Division. Sanford Meisner was part of The Group Theatre that emerged after their training in Europe by Stanislavski himself. America’s most influential acting teachers include Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Harold Clurman, Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen, all of whom trace their pedigrees to Stanislavski. This means Kathleen is second generation to the great master of what is known as THE METHOD in today’s theatrical world. In this class, you will be learning the foundation of the craft of acting. These exercises, applied to your own life, are equally inspiring and useful. The class includes improv in preparation for scene work using the practices originated my Meisner and Stanislavski. These exercises help in all communication skills of life and are fun and empowering.
While living in Los Angeles, Kathleen was part of The Actor’s Institute started by Ted Danson and Dan Fauci. This focused not only on the craft of acting, but the “business” of the entertainment industry itself. This knowledge is equally important in a career and is part of what will be taught. She will soon be producing entertainment projects here.
Kathleen is currently involved in feature film projects that will have some shooting schedules in the Verde Valley. She was part of several TV series that shot pilots here in the area as well. She has cast some of her students in those productions and expects to do the same for future productions.
