“Inside the Actor’s Process: Classical”

Grossmont College presents a unique show that will enlighten performers and audiences alike on how to enjoy classic theater from the likes of Moliere, Ibsen, Chekhov, Shakespeare, and Goldsmith. Many an actor has found themselves face to face with the classics and felt the immediate instinct to run screaming back to plays written without all the “Thou and thee and hither and yon.” But what happens when we approach these works the same way we look at modern realistic plays where people speak like we do?  What if there was a way to de-mystify the language and discover the joy with which they were written and originally performed?

Feb. 2–3 at 7:30 p.m.; special matinee show on Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., at Grossmont Stagehouse Theatre, 8800 Grossmont College Dr., El Cajon 92020. Cost is $10. Tickets available at box office or bit.ly/2mc4m9m.
