Ann Arbor Civic Theatre offers acting workshop

By Staff

This winter, on 6 Saturdays between February 4 and March 10, Ann Arbor Civic Theatre will offer a hands-on workshop on acting and analysis.

"What am I Doing Up Here?" is designed to give students practical techniques to take away and use, and is appropriate for actors, ages 16 and up, of all levels of experience. Classes run from 1-3:30 p.m. each Saturday; those interested may register online at, or by calling or visiting the A2CT office during business hours (M-F, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.) at 322 W. Ann Street, 734-971-2228. All classes take place at A2CT’s Studio at the above address.

The workshop is taught by Glenn Bugala, director of A2CT's critically acclaimed productions of "Our Town," "Tommy," "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Front Page," and "A Little Night Music." The course teaches the Practical Aesthetics Approach designed by David Mamet and the Atlantic Theatre Company. It is highlighted by a common-sense, objectives-based analysis coupled with realistic living in the moment. This acting class is designed to give the students practical techniques to take away and use immediately. For additional information, visit or call the A2CT office at 734-971-2228.
