Maybe some of you are feeling a bit braver, however, so here's where to go for local acting classes.
One option is the Indianapolis Civic Theatre, which offers a Studio Series of adult acting and dance performance classes. The 10-week Basic Acting class costs $150 and begins in September.
Another option: Acting classes through Carmel Community Players. Taught by local actor Ken Klingenmeier (who actually has his own IMDB page), the Beginning Acting class lasts six weeks and costs $105. There's also a workshop on improvisation, if you're feeling super-brave.
The Phoenix Theatre and the Indiana Repertory Theatre also offer adult acting classes, but none are scheduled at the moment. I'll keep checking back and let you know when classes are listed.
P.S. If you do take a class at the IRT, try to have a word with someone about the recent series of *abridged* Shakespeare plays. I mean, really.
