Class Experience

This is a 5 day acting course that focuses on the fundamentals of dramatic theater; from creating an ensemble, to acting and stagecraft. The 5 days will be spent simultaneously building skills and learning a script, with a performance at the end of the final session.

CPPAC will follow all CDC, state, and local guidelines for safety procedures, and will continue to closely monitor infection rates throughout the summer.

Instructor: Tony Cohen
After spending the majority of his life eagerly consuming film and comedy from the sidelines, Tony finally took the plunge and began taking improv classes in 2015, two months after moving to Portland. It has not only resulted in a sharpening of his acting and comedic skills, but has also introduced him to an amazing community of like-minded people who are all striving to support and create together.
Tony has found that the rules of comedic improvisation could just as easily be life rules; being a good listener, having empathy, being true to yourself, and knowing that you’re only as good as those around you. These are the values that Tony tries to live by, and reinforce in his acting classes. He relishes the opportunity to work with kids. Their endless imaginations, enthusiasm and love of all things silly make them ideal candidates for learning acting and improv.
In addition to his expertise in improv, Tony is also an accomplished graphic designer. His work can be found at:
