Everyman Rep will run weekly acting classes Wednesdays, beginning Nov. 16, at 6 p.m. at Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln St. Cost for each class will be $5, to help cover the cost of the room. Those interested may join at any time.

Classes will always start with a warm-up but after that, every class will be different. Attendees will work on speeches and scenes; actors can bring a scene and a partner or Everyman will assign a partner and/or a scene. Also addressed will be improvisation and repetition, basic skills that every actor needs. Vocal work based on Kristin Linklater’s practices, speech, diction, accents — and anything else students feel they need help with to extend their skills and craft — will be taught.

“Acting is like any other art, it benefits from constant practice. We decided to run these classes, which will be led by David Troup, Jennifer Hodgson and myself in rotation, because we all need to keep our acting muscles in shape,” said Paul Hodgson, Everyman’s artistic director.

For more information, call 236-0173. All attendees need is a pencil, a notebook and “to remember to turn off your cell phone.” Everyman Repertory Theatre, founded in 2008, is a registered 501(c)3, not-for-profit theater company committed to bringing live, professional theater to the people of Midcoast Maine.
