Ron Kurtz is back with another fascinating journey to discover how “words on the page” become “words on the stage.” The course will increase the audience’s enjoyment of the play “Wit,” directed by Ron Kurtz at ACT Studio 209, by giving them an appreciation for what is involved in staging a play – set design, casting, lighting and sound and, most importantly, directing the actors. Participants will have 4 class sessions, see the play, and have a final wrap-up session.
