Today is the day to meet and work with Donna McKenna. The day begins with a Q/A with Donna. Next, each actor will get to work on camera with Donna and receive feedback. Each actor, one at a time, will go into our studio to work on camera with Donna on pre-selected sides and be supported by one of our outstanding readers. The rest of the class will get to watch and listen on a television monitor in the main room. Each actor's work will be emailed to them in the form of a High Definition Quicktime Movie after the class to review as they wish.
