One of my fellow actors in Anne of Avonlea, Kathleen Seconder, recommended Pat Hurley’s acting class at the Alliance Theatre. She said there were prerequisites but that with my experience I should be able to get into the class.
Having been in rehearsals on Wednesday nights, the night of classes, I put off calling Pat until this week. We talked on the phone and I was invited to sit in on last nights class.
Literally as I grabbed my phone yesterday to leave for the class, it rang. Pat called and said that because some people were going to be missing, would I mind reading a scene with another student. Of course I said I would.
That was my audition for the class. Pat invited me to join his class. I cannot describe how excited he seemed to be over my performance: Smiles, “As Advertised” (Kathleen had talked to him about me earlier in the year), etc. It is kind of a blur.
I am very excited to be in a class where “getting you to the next level” was mentioned often.
