Hopkinton POS

Teen and Adult Actor's Studio Winter Session | Starts January 21 with Jere Shea

Tony Award Nominated Actor, Jere Shea

Winter sessions for the HCA Actors Studios at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts begin on January 21. Both teen and adult studios will continue to meet in person barring any change in directives from health officials—observing all face-mask, social distancing and public health requirements. 

Also, both programs will also resume scene work (yes!) along with monologues with adjustments to blocking to help keep everyone safe. Links to information and registration for the separate Adult and Teen studios are below. 

Instructor Jere Shea is expanding his private coaching schedule to take on additional students, and he's available “world-wide”— both in-person and online depending on location, comfort, and safety. Regular 1:1 coaching is helpful for building skills and prepping for auditions, college admissions, and performances. As you know, it’s all about letting the work "marinate" for a while to find real freedom and artistry. Please email Jere to arrange a conversation about how he can help you with your goals. And if you know someone who can use a coach, please feel free to put them in touch with Jere.
