Janet Rodgers Teaches Richmond Shakespeare's February Master Class!

I am unbelievably thrilled to announce that one of my mentors and heroes, Theatre VCU's amazing Voice and Speech teacher Janet Rodgers, is teaching February's Master Class at Richmond Shakespeare.

February Master Class:
Harnessing Your Actor’s Energy
With Janet Rodgers of Theatre VCU
February 13, 2007 7:00-9:30 PM
Second Presbyterian Church (5 N. 5th Street)

Come learn techniques to unlock your energy as an actor and part of an ensemble. Instructor Janet Rodgers introduces the first, second, and third Circles of Energy, as developed by world-renowned Stage Voice teacher Patsy Rodenburg. We will also learn a system of actor training, “Oxy Rhythm Exercises,” that expands the connections between mind, breath, and body while developing core strength.

Janet Rodgers is Head of Performance, Voice and Speech for VCU’s renowned Theatre department. A celebrated career of teaching and performing has brought her to Scotland, England, Romania, and Switzerland, and she has served as President and a Board Member of VASTA, the Voice and Speech Teacher’s Association. Her book, The Complete Voice and Speech Workout Book and CD was published four years ago by Applause Books.

Master Class participants should wear comfortable exercise clothing, bring water bottles, and be prepared to move! The Master Class costs $10 at the door.

Anyone interested in attending should contact the Director of Training to make a reservation. Call 804-232-4000 or email

After reserving your space, please send in a completed Student Registration Form.

    Hey man - I might be interested in this workshop if we aren't rehearsing that evening. Let's see what Kate has in store for rehearsals.

    I'd really like to be there, too. Janet is just an amazing teacher, and everyone I've spoken to who has done these topics with her says it's amazing.
