Tom Todoroff Master Class

I attended a workshop taught by Tom Todoroff, a NYC-based acting coach. He has trained Hollywood heavyweights such as Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson Claire Danes, and Tony Goldwyn. 

I arrived early so I could get a good seat. The class had around 40 other actors, some very accomplished. The three and a half hour master class was accelerated but very informative. I walked out with five pages of notes that I can apply immediately! I'm considering attending his one-week summer intensive in New York City.

Rest in Heaven Professor Day

I was blessed to take theater classes while I was still living in North Carolina. Though I only took two classes, I'm glad I got to meet a professor named Frankie Day. Not only was she a great professor, she was also Theater Program Director/Executive Director of the Paul Roberson Theater. I remember being intimidated but she was so sweet and warm. Her class was so fun! Whenever I didn't do as well as I wanted in class, I left inspired and ready to do better the next class.  I learned so much from her and love theater even more now. I will miss you, Ms. Day.
