Register soon for Adult Acting Classes

Lesley Gray Warren, a theatre instructor at Jefferson State Community College and Spotlight Program Coordinator for CEPA, will lead adult acting classes in July and August at CEPA in Pell City.

Beginning in July, the adults of St. Clair County will get their chance to shine on the CEPA stage.

In response to high demand, the Center For Education and Performing Arts (CEPA) in Pell City, located at 25 Williamson Drive, is offering its inaugural Adult Acting Class beginning next month. The class will be taught by Lesley Gray Warren, a veteran actor and director who has taught acting on the university level for more than five years.

Warren is currently an instructor of theatre at Jefferson State – St. Clair and serves as Spotlight Program Coordinator for CEPA. She most recently directed the CEPA production of Bus Stop in April under the Spotlight banner, which is the nonprofit’s program aimed at expanding theater education in the county.

Acting class students will learn the basic techniques of the most famous acting teachers of the 20th Century.  They will focus on vocal strength, honest listening and communication, physical relaxation and simply being a real person on stage.

“You don’t have to be an actor to need an acting class,” says Warren.“The skills actors learn are translatable to almost any occupation. I mean, who couldn’t stand to be a more confident, more effective communicator and public speaker?”

Classes run Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 11 through August 17 from 6-8 p.m. with a showcase performance on the final evening. Cost is $185 per student or $300 per couple. Space is limited to 18 students, so register soon.
