Let's go deep. Summer is the perfect time to dive in and explore acting without the limitations of gender and type.

Founded by Gina Young in 2016, Feminist Acting Class is a revolutionary experiment in actor training that questions existing class structures, centers the work of women playwrights, validates the experience of queer, trans, and other underrepresented groups, and above all creates a groundbreaking space to expand as an artist.

Now for the first time, Feminist Acting Class is being offered as a nine-week course, led by Gina Young with voice work by Micaela Tobin and special guests. Participants will engage in scene study, solo performance, field trips, and a showcase for the arts community at the end.
