Arena Stage in Washington D.C. offered us the most ambitious version of the Series working in partnership with MasterClass the online education portal.

Twenty emerging actors, at various stages of their careers, were selected through open audition to work together over one extraordinary weekend.

Each day began with a physical and vocal warm up that focused the mind and set the energy for the day.

Participants were then taken down to the famous in-the-round auditorium space. This grand platform immediately gave the workshop participants a feeling of professionalism.

Over the course of the weekend mask work, text study improvisation and cold reading were all tackled and interrogated by Kevin using his own real life professional experiences to offer insight and advice.

The group were hugely supportive of one other evidenced in the continuing professional relationships that have developed since.
