Lifelong Acting

ACT101Bob and I have enjoyed seeing the presentations of Acting 101 at the end of each sequence of classes. A range of people of different ages perform monologues and scenes with honesty and intensity. Why do acting classes have an appeal for people of all ages? ¬†We decided to interview students we knew to find out what they enjoyed about studying acting, even if they weren’t interested in careers in acting. Miriam Silver and Maggie Pendergast were most obliging. We also spoke with Dan Silver who had studied acting as a young man, but went on to another career, but has since returned to it, acting with the Dorset Players and with Oldcastle Theatre Company.
