Electives-ONLINE!

The Pack’s core Improv and Sketch Programs represent what we consider to be the foundations for good performers and writers. We also offer elective workshops throughout the year because a good performer never stops learning. Our electives help students expand their performance abilities and refine their understanding of different approaches to the work. Our commitment to adjustment, adaptation and evolution is what separates The Pack Theater from other comedy schools.

PLEASE READ

During the current Covid-19 pandemic The Pack Theater is unable to offer our normal classes which would meet at our theater and class spaces in Hollywood, CA.

So we are going ONLINE!

We will be utilizing the ZOOM platform.
Please download the Zoom meeting software to enable you to join the class, FREE at https://zoom.us.
You will be sent the meeting room code shortly before the class is scheduled to start.
As we are based in Los Angeles, all class times are PST.

Description

A Characters Workshop with John Milhiser is here to help you create, develop and perform funny original characters.  Yes, there will be plenty of wigs in this class, but this workshop will teach you how to think beyond the wigs. So much so, that you won’t even want the wigs.  Or at the very least, a lot fewer wigs. This workshop will focus on developing the game, physical movement and voice of each sketch character — even if they don’t have a literal voice. This class will focus on finding the funny in everyday life and how to transition that successfully to the stage.  Each student will be required to develop characters outside of class as well as in. By the end of the workshop each student will get to perform a full set of newly written characters in front of an online audience.

Description

The days of acting in a room with a casting director are gone – maybe temporarily, but probably not. So let’s get those self-tapes in shape!

This course will help you discover tips and tricks in order to create dynamic self-tape auditions.

Each week students will receive an audition notice just like you would from an agent and a deadline to turn in a self-tape by. The sides will be from a wide spectrum of types of roles – under 5’s, guest star, co-star, series reg – and from shows on TV. Additionally, in class you will workshop an additional scene that you will also self-tape. Which, yes, is 2 self-tapes each week! By the end of the course, students will have completed and received feedback on a total of 10 self-tapes.

Working alongside an industry professional will ensure your self-tapes will be up to the professional standards of our ever-changing industry.

Voice Over Mondays 5-7pm ZOOM January 4th

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

SKU: voice-over-online-jan-feb-2021 Category:

Description

This foundational class is a hands-on, deeply practical approach to adding voiceover to your performance career. Alternating between comedic commercial and animation copy, you will work on mic to discover and fine tune what you uniquely bring to a script. You’ll learn exactly what info you need from a spec for commercial, and how to bring what you already do on stage to a cartoon script. We’ll also discuss the business, how it’s changed, what to avoid, and how to get your career off the ground. The quarantine edition of class, which meets via Zoom, has the added bonus of weekly homework, where you’ll self-direct and record audition copy ahead of class. Home studios welcome but not required— for class purposes, recording on your phone is fine.
