“This class should be mandatory for every new member,” notes a fellow SAG-AFTRA actor. This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about background acting and will provide you with a complete understanding of your role in the film process. If you have ever wondered what’s going on; what you should do; if you don’t understand the terms; if you are experienced but want to learn more, join us. Some on-camera work, time permitting. 

When: 7-9 p.m., Monday, April 8 NEW DATE!
