Temple Anshe Amunim, 26 Broad Street, will host a four-part scene study class on consecutive Tuesdays beginning August 2nd at 10:00 a.m.

Students will have the opportunity to prepare and perform scenes from both well-known and new plays in a supportive atmosphere that encourages creativity and individual interpretation. Each week the instructor will assign scenes to the students, working in pairs or individually, to prepare and perform during the subsequent session. The selections will challenge the students to portray a variety of characters. The instructor, a professional theatre director, will provide constructive criticism and suggestions. Both new and experienced actors are welcome.

The course will be held on four consecutive Tuesday mornings from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. beginning on August 2, and will be taught by Dr. Barbara Waldinger, a director and professor of Theatre.
