The Front Porch Theatre presents

New workshop! Coming soon~


Come join Deborah Sinclair with assistance from Connie Hurst (both of whom recently performed in the successful production of The Dixie Swim Club with the Front Porch Theatre) and explore the art of acting. Cost for the six-week class is $90.  “Acting as an Art Form” will be in the theater on the main level of the Black Mountain Center for the Arts.  Watch for upcoming dates in the Fall!

This scene-study class will focus on acting as a vehicle for transformation as it provides an opportunity to strengthen your Self physically and mentally, while at the same time learning to embrace your vulnerability and flexibility in relationship with others – publicly! As students present their scene to the class each week, the directors’ areas of focus will depend on the experience level of each participant and the needs of the group as a whole.

The class is for all levels of experience. If you have never been on stage, this is a great way to begin, simply, with a single scene. If you have had some experience, this class will afford you an opportunity to explore limiting beliefs or habits that may be holding you back from a fuller, more fulfilling performance experience.

Deborah Sinclair has a BA in Drama from Washington University in St. Louis and furthered her acting training studying the Meisner Technique and the Alexander Technique. Deborah has performed in numerous regional and Off Broadway shows with acclaimed directors including Marc Weinblatt and David Greenspan and was a member of The First Amendment Comedy and Improvisation Company in NYC for several years.

Connie Hurst has involved herself in nearly every aspect of theater beginning in 1997 when she was cast in The Man of LaMancha in central Florida. After falling in love with the craft, she was cast in numerous community and professional theater productions. In 2010 Connie founded The People’s Theater of Key West where she spearheaded new and innovative artistic processes, bringing together qualified and talented teachers with the goal of enriching the community through the art of theatrical performance.
