Press Release

Attention WNY actors and those who dream of becoming an actor: Join us, as First Look Buffalo Theatre Company presents our “Actor’s Spring Tune Up.”

Actors of all levels can take four workshops, taught by some of WNY’s best artists, in one day.

Each workshop will consist of students with the same level of experience (beginners to veterans). They will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Saint Mary’s High School at 142 Laverack Ave., Lancaster.

Workshops will include:

•“The Actor’s Objective”: This workshop, taught by professional actor Bob Rusch (“Sons Of Anarchy,” “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” “Mom”), focuses on actors making strong choices, that will help guide them through a scene, either in class, a play, or on set.

•“Improv”: This workshop, taught by Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade alum Bob Bozek, will demonstrate some of the greatest exercises and games used by professional improv performers from “Saturday Night Live” and “Who’s Line Is It Anyway.”

•“On-Camera Audition Technique”: This workshop, taught by Actor and 2NY VIDEO owner/operator Anthony Grande, teaches actors the best techniques on self-taping auditions to ensure the best chance of getting hired for the job.

•“Script Analysis for the Working Actor”: This workshop, taught by professional playwright and director and Bella Poynton, Ph.D., will show actors the invaluable tool of understanding basic script structure and how they can use it to the benefit of their performance.
