In mid November, Company One’s Professional Development for Actors (PDA) class had its biannual Showcase. The evening consisted of 29 scenes and monologues performed by the actors and actresses participating in the 10-week program. The purpose of the PDA class is to prepare actors for the audition process and to equip them with material to audition with.

The pieces, thoughtfully selected by instructors Ros Thomas-Clark and Victoria Marsh, were diverse and befitting of the actors performing them. They ranged from Shakespeare’s classic As You Like It to Kirsten Greenidge’s contemporary 103 Within the Veil (first produced by Company One in 2005).

 

Over 100 people attended the Showcase, from friends and family to casting directors and Company One staff, including Artistic Director Shawn LaCount.

The success of the evening was evident by the energetic atmosphere in the lobby following the performances. In the midst of hugs and congratulations, an immense feeling of pride was felt by everyone.

We at Company One congratulate the actors and actresses in the Fall 2015 PDA class on an incredibly successful evening! We congratulate your growth, your commitment and your talent, and we look forward to seeing you on stages throughout Boston very soon!
