Embracing the drama

. February 1, 2013.

Let's face it — teens can be a bit dramatic. Now they can hone their skills, as Redbud Productions begins its thirteenth season of fall acting classes for teens and adults. Taught by local director and actress Loretta Grimes, students will learn techniques of Sanford Meisner and focus on emotional performance work, improvisation and scene study. Grimes has performed in Redbud Production's The Miracle Worker, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Marvin's Room and many others. Her students have gone on to perform in local theatre groups including the Purple Rose Theater, Encore Musical Theatre the Ann Arbor Civic Theater and Redbud Productions.

Classes begin on Saturday, September 10 and continue through December 3 from 3-5:30pm for $150 per semester. To register call 734-663-7167 or email minkit@aol.com. 1101 Ravenwood. www.redbudproductions.com
