Class Description

This class will cover both comedic and dramatic acting. We will look into what makes a scene funny and give you specific tools you can use to improve your comedic performance without blindly hoping you’re finding things to “make it funnier.” We will also go deeper into dramatic acting to create three dimensional characters and improve believability with high stakes. The class will include a combination of cold reading material as well as some memorized scenes. When it’s all said and done, people will gasp in awe at the greatness of your acting. Or possibly because it’s cold and flu season and they’re short of breath. But probably because of your great acting. Probably.


Jeff Yarnell

That rascal Jeff Yarnell has been teaching theatre in the Blue Valley school district for the past twenty-five years to the adoring throngs. And by "adoring" we mean "mildly disapproving" and by "throngs" we mean "sparse populous." He and his lovely bride (now THAT gal, she's actually SOMETHING!) have been actively involved in the drama community for the past thirty years, but still managed to raise four children who didn't become theatre majors. They also have six grandchildren (doesn't he look far too young for that to be a possibility?!?) and Jeff, on good days, can name almost all of them. He also leads an improv team, The Argon Ship, who, for the past seventeen years, have been performing throughout the area.
