Marilee Talkington, creator of the Access Acting Academy, joins Simon Bonenfant and Lisa Andrews for an in-depth look at not only the Access Acting Academy and the classes being offered, the conversation goes backstage to discover what drove Marilee to begin the revolution and bring Access Acting Academy from an idea to our reality.
(From the web)
Access Acting Academy is a 1st-of-its-kind actor training program for blind, low vision, and visually impaired adults, teens and kids. Training of this caliber, breadth, and level of accessibility have never been offered before. Until now.
Whether you are simply curious, a beginning actor, early to mid career professional, or someone who performed before experiencing vision loss and is eager to integrate your new perception so you can get back out there, there is something here for you. Our ONLINE Fall classes are made up of two 4-week online sessions offering study in the core classes of Acting, Voice, Embodiment, Musical Theater, Dynamic Movement and Gesture, and Shakespeare. And our electric Friday night SLAM SERIES and Special Guest Artist Weekend Intensives will cover a huge range of leading edge and helpful artistic topics ranging from Creating Solo Work to Rockin’ Your Self-Tape.
Come join the Revolution and reveal the creative greatness within you.

“We are inherently rich with imagination and potent creative potential. No one is missing anything necessary to be an impactful creator.”
