Acting The Crucible: Great Success!

We had a wonderful two night exploration of Arthur Miller's masterpiece: The Crucible.

I would like to do another two night seminar in January.  It's just a chance for actors to come together and brush up their chops using a variety of tools from Stanislavsky to Laban.

Please let me know if you're interested in participating. The cost is only $50 for two evenings of work. I would like to do scenes from Anthon Chekhov's Uncle Vanya.  The dates are up in the air--depending on your availability and scheduling at the Midvale Main Street Theatre.

Send me an email at if you are interested in participating in the next workshop. We assign scenes ahead of time to give you a chance to learn the scene and come prepared to dive right in!

Again--I want to thank the great actors who participated in this month's seminar. It was a joy to work with all of you!

Our next voice class will be on Tuesday, Dec 18th at 7pm. If you'd like to participate, it is $20 for the 2 hour voice class. We will be singing Christmas music, of course! Please let me know via email if you'd like to participate so I can have enough music!

Acting The Crucible

Calling all actors!

For two nights only, we will explore scenes from Arthur Miller's The Crucible. Actors who sign up for the class will receive their scripts by November 1st so that they can prepare their scenes prior to the workshop.

On November 7th and November 14th from 7-10pm we will explore how to approach the character work.  Each actor will learn a number of tools in the scene study that will help you to better explore future parts. 

The cost for this scene study is $50/actor.  Payment is due at the first class, November 7th. Classes will take place at 
Midvale Main Street Theatre
7711 S Main Street (700 W)
Midvale, UT

In order to be considered for the class, please email us at or contact Eve Speer on facebook before October 30th.

*We will choose scenes from The Crucible based on the actors we assemble for the class.

Successful Story Creating Workshop

Last week, we held our first story creating workshop. 

Nathan Klingonsmith, Raven Flynn, Faith Johnson and London Flynn created an amazing story of intrigue and emotion as they told of a homeless magician named Steve, a law man Larry Knox, a runaway rich girl named Bri with a secret identity, and a lonely pink-haired waitress named Skye. 

They sang beautifully, chose amazing costumes, wigs and hats, and designed make-up that worked best for their characters using their new Ben Nye make-up kits. 

Currently, we are in the middle of the 5-Week Actors Seminar. 

Stay tuned for more great educational opportunities!

Student Highlight: Rebecca Waite

Meet our newest voice student Rebecca Waite!

She has a beautiful mature voice. Every week she gets better and better.  It has been a lot of fun to get to know the great things she can do! Right now, we're working on songs from Wicked, South Pacific, and Next To Normal.

She is studying theatre in college and she is a volunteer at the Capitol Theatre.  She brings passion and talent to class every week and I can't wait to see her perform on the stage!
