This year, we are thrilled to announce Winter/Spring 2020 Conservatory Classes with our study of Classical acting as the foundation for film and TV acting. Our students will continue learning and expanding on the concept of acting deep emotional truth through intensive character development.
Conservatory is for the young, aspiring professional actor to develop a reliable process of working in film, television, and theatre. This is our 8th year of working with young artists in South Florida, and we have never been more motivated to help bring the new actors in our organization into the professional world of performance. We have had many student successes over the past 14 years through RMCT’s programming, from helping our young students transition into professional theatre, land major roles on television shows, and leading roles in film, finishing our first workshop of our original television show, 'The BIG Audition', to shooting the pilot episode of the BIG Audition this past summer, preparing to pitch it to network, and finally to sending off our latest graduating seniors to university on acting scholarships. When students finish this 10-week intensive course, they will be emotionally, physically, and intellectually transformed. We will work on scene construction and the process creating the role for movies, TV shows, and classical plays. There will be a showcase in the spring with invited agents and past successful students. This will be our best class yet.
Our Artistic Director has been teaching for 25 years, and in this time, he has developed a successful strategy for helping every student realize how crucial classical training is to create a successful life as a professional actor.
Each session, we choose a challenge for the students to focus on. We select work that accelerates our students' understanding of the artistic process, propelling them to unbelievable heights in their work. This year's Conservatory Class will be special, for we have students at every experience level. All are at the right place to learn! This ensemble is ready to take a professional leap. Come be a part of this exceptional work. It will change your life forever!

This year, we are thriled to announce Winter/Spring 2020 Acting 101 Classes with our study of a variety of popular Broadway plays and musicals of interest to our youngest actors. Our students will continue learning and to keep expanding on the concept of acting and character development.
This fun Class is for the creative child who is determined to be on stage. Successful actors and performers start off on the stage learning how to be comfortable in their own skin so that they can begin to play the roles of other people. Our students learn that the creative process is not exclusively for some mysterious group of humans, but rather it is a simple and fun filled skill set that everyone should learn. We start the Class with creative dramatics, and by teaching students a number of exercises and games to help them get over the fear of performing in front of others. After we create this safe environment in which to explore, we begin skill building and creating characters for the stage. Acting 101 Class is magical, fun and necessary for every young actor.
We start the Class with creative dramatics which include performing in class while introducing the idea of circles of concentration which becomes an intro of acting in front of the camera. This class is a physical based class aimed towards children who are very active and could use an outlet. We create and work scenes that require very little words but very big actions. Scenes will be chosen for your child based on their skill level from a variety of kid’s TV shows and productions. After we create this environment in which to explore an actor’s instrument, we begin skill building and creating characters for the camera. We apply the character work in scenes appropriate for the student’s age. Finally, after five weeks of training, we will have a showcase of the work that we explored in class to celebrate new skills by our young actors.
All students enrolled in this class will be equally involved in the plays/showcases with a significant speaking role worthy of every student's skillset.
**Each Student will perform in a showcase during the final class of each 5-week session, so 3/2 & 4/20.
WINTER SESSION 1 - Creating Masks for Performance: We start this Class with creative physical comedy and mask work. Yes, we will be making masks out of plaster and found objects, using the masks to create character and performing on stage with new found mask and movement skills. Working with mask truly helps the young student to manage and get over the fear of performing in front of others, and too, teaches leadership skills needed for public speaking. After we create a safe environment in which to explore, we begin skill building and creating characters for the stage. We apply the character work in scenes appropriate for the student’s age. Finally, after five weeks of training, we will have a showcase of the work that we explored in class to celebrate new found skills by our young actors.
SPRING SESSION 2 - Creating a Show from Scratch: We start the Class with creative dramatics which include introducing the young actor to the idea that stories are everywhere and that performing on a stage is the literal version of storytelling. We begin by teaching students exercises and games to help them get over the fear of performing in front of others. After we create this safe environment in which to explore, we begin skill building for creating characters for the stage and we show them how that character progresses as their stories progress. We apply the character work in a story created by the group. Finally, after five weeks of training, we showcase the new play created to celebrate their newfound skills.
*We will also be incorporating popular childrens musicals into these two class sessions, where students chose and perform in scenes from some of the most beloved children's musicals such as Frozen, Moana, The Addams Family, Willy Wonka, Aladdin, The Lion King, Beauty & the Beast, & More!
Taught by RMCT's Founder & Artistic/Education Director, Anthony Hubert. This class is appropriate for both students who are new to acting, and for those who have taken Acting 101 in the past - this class is never a repeat!
