Exceptional Beginning Acting Classes (and More!) at Freehold Theatre

Freehold has been offering acting classes (and more) in Seattle since the summer of 1991. Located in Belltown, we offer introductory courses for the absolute beginner as well as master classes for working professionals. All Freehold faculty are working professional actors, playwrights and directors whose credentials include recognized work on and off Broadway, in major motion pictures, on television, and in regional and international theatre venues.

Step I: Intro to Acting with Sarah Harlett and Meg McLynn

At Freehold, we believe that acting is a process that can be learned and practiced by anyone at any age.   In the Intro class, you develop fundamental acting tools:  playing an action, living truthfully in imaginary circumstances, and working with a partner.  No matter your experience, you learn acting in an exciting and safe environment.  This is the first class in our three-step acting progression, introducing you to a vocabulary and approach that will be the basis of Step II: Acting with Text and Step III: Basic Scene Study.
