The Larry Moss Masterclass Scholarship

Larry Moss: Sydney & Melbourne 4 Day Masterclass

Showcast and 16th Street Actors Studio are proud to offer Showcast members an opportunity to work with one of the world’s most acclaimed acting coaches, Larry Moss.

Larry Moss taught at The Juilliard School and Circle in the Square in New York City before moving to Los Angeles and opening The Larry Moss Studio. Larry has directed numerous plays and coached many award-winning actors including Helen Hunt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hilary Swank, Tobey Maguire and Jim Carrey.

 

The Masterclass

In each of the Masterclasses, Larry will work with the actors to break down and explore the relationships to all persons, places, objects and events that the writer gives us; a deep exploration of the world of the text – be that of a play or a musical.

– Celebrated Plays: Contemporary & Classic

In this Advanced Scene Study component, Masterclass actors will discover the joy and freedom that is possible when they are in service of something bigger than themselves – the play.

Learning how to interpret and inhabit a scene illuminates the story and is the basis for Larry’s approach to acting. Beginning with an actor’s physical life on stage, Larry helps the actor to reveal the depth of emotional meaning and importance of the character’s need in the text and encourages the actor to commit fully to their choices. This focus on story, personalisation and imagination gives actors a rich resource to access and a focus that allows the performer to reach their potential.

– The Best Of Broadway

In this Musical Theatre component, Masterclass Musical Theatre actors will explore the magic and possibility when a character begins to sing, deeply connecting with the passion of the scene.

Great works of fine Art, orchestras, Ballet, fashion, novels and voices have the power to transport us to other realms, other times and other journeys through life. Larry’s work with the Best of Broadway Masterclass actors will explore the form of storytelling unique to musical theatre which combines the power of theatrical disciplines: song, story and movement. In the same way that Larry approaches his Advanced Scene Study work with plays, he will lead each actor to the truth of their character, and on a discovery of the hero’s journey – all through the medium of the Broadway musical.
