      Of all the skills an actor must master, the most essential is how to
      communicate the subtext of a character. Subtext means the
      character's true goals in a scene and their hidden agendas. The best
      way to learn this is with scene study.

      Everyone knows actors use all of themselves to actualize their art.
      What separates the professional from the amateur is when an actor can
      become objective about what they are doing and how they are doing it.

      This isn't easy to do, but students with The Actors Alliance attain
      this level quickly by observing their work on TV and getting positive
      practical feedback from the instructor and other members of the
      class. Over time, observing your work creates the psychological
      distance you need to be truly objective. Once you can do that, you
      will have the confidence to undertake any role you like.

      In the Fall Series starting on August 20 in Metairie, on August 21 in
      Covington, and on August 23 in Denham Springs, actors will be shown
      how to discern and root out the hidden objectives in a scene to make
      the most interesting choices. They will learn how to identify with
      any character in order to accurately define that character's
      subtext. And they will explore how utilizing their personal subtext
      makes a scene especially exciting.
