We Need Your Support!

We are raising $3000 through the month of June to cover the cost of producing a Festival of Plays to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Bennett TheatreLab in Tucson, AZ. Raised money will go toward royalty fees, the theater rental, costumes, set & prop pieces, hiring a stage manager, and more. Those involved are volunteering their time, energy and resources to make this a reality.

Students ranging from their first year to third year will be performing Full Length Plays (Agnes of God by John Pielmeier & Red by John Logan), as well as Classical & Contemporary Scenes and Monologues, directed by Stanislavsky Teaching Artist & Artistic Director, Philip G. Bennett.

The shows will be scheduled in true repertory style, with 11 performances showing in 8 days. 

The dates of the festival will be between August 2nd-12th, 2018. Performances will be held in the Studio Theatre at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre, in Tucson, Arizona.

TWO MASTERS, FIVE YEARS IN THE MAKING...

This pioneering introduction to Stanislavsky's methods and modes of actor training covers all of the essential elements of his System. Recreating ‘truthful’ behaviour in the artificial environment, awareness and observation, psychophysical work, given circumstances, visualization and imagination, and active analysis are all introduced and explored.

  • Each section of the book is accompanied by individual and group exercises, forming a full course of study in the foundations of modern acting.
  • A glossary explains the key terms and concepts that are central to Stanislavsky’s thinking at a glance.
  • The book’s companion website is full of downloadable worksheets and resources for teachers and students.

Experiencing Stanislavsky Today is enhanced by contemporary findings in psychology, neuroscience, anatomy and physiology that illuminate the human processes important to actors, such as voice and speech, creativity, mind-body connection, the process and the production of emotions on cue. It is the definitive first step for anyone encountering Stanislavsky’s work, from acting students exploring his methods for the first time, to directors looking for effective rehearsal tools and teachers mapping out degree classes.
