Adult Scene Study Class At Parkway Playhouse


Parkway Playhouse will offer an acting class for adults starting  on Saturdays from 11am-1pm.  The class will meet for ten sessions starting on March 21.   Tuition for the class is $150.  A $50 deposit is required to secure enrollment.  

The class is being taught by Ralph Redpath, a professional actor based in Asheville who has worked extensively with Flat Rock Playhouse, and has regularly worked with most all of the theatre companies in Western North Carolina.   Redpath is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama, where he received an MFA in Acting, and studied alongside classmates the Tony-Award Winning Playwright, Christopher Durang, and three-time Academy-Award winner Meryl Streep.    Locally, he has acted in numerous productions, and directed plenty more.  He will be directing the upcoming farce Not Now, Darling for Asheville Community Theatre.

“This is a great opportunity for actors of all experience levels to engage in some exciting growth” commented Parkway Playhouse Artistic Director, Andrew Gall, who has directed Redpath in several regional productions.  “Ralph’s class will focus on the actor’s work, creating character and working with other actors, and telling a story.  I am thrilled that he will be working with us at Parkway Playhouse.”

Classes will focus on monologue and scene work.

“I feel like actors learn just as much from watching each other” says Redpath about his teaching style.  “ It is a very collaborative.  This is a kind class, no one yells or screams, and everyone is involved.  We have a good time and we learn a lot.”
