Smaller Role, Bigger Challenge
Smaller Role, Bigger Challenge
Highly Recommended for those who’ve attended the DRAMA & COMEDY Courses. This class specifically focuses on the unique challenges that arise with supporting roles, which most often are presented to Actors in the Atlanta Market. The work in DRAMA and COMEDY Courses is adapted and applied to these supporting, and often more challenging situations.

SMALLER ROLL – BIGGER CHALLENGE
Most of the LEADING ROLES are set long before productions arrive in Atlanta and show up on your audition radar (including local casting directors, agents, managers, and self-submissions.) You are usually last cast, with the exception of “extras/background”.
How many LEADING ROLES do you get to audition for versus SUPPORTING and “Under-Five”/”Co-star” ROLES?
DO NOT BE DECIEVED! These roles are VERY challenging and difficult to cast!
GOOD NEWS! The same HIGH QUALITY OF ACTING: from Prepartation to Execution is demanded if you are to be taken seriously, and add your name to the cast lists of the ever increasing number of projects moving into the Atlanta Market. This high quality of work is what will land you on the casting directors “A-Lists” when they are under the pressure of finding qualified talent to fulfill the needs of their productions.
“The great work comes when you master the basics.” to quote Ted.
It is when you SKIP these BASICS that you get into trouble and suddenly, as if an alien has invaded your body, you find yourself unable to speak simple English and play a simple one to three line scene.
DO NOT LET THIS BE YOU! or STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!
SMALLER ROLE – BIGGER CHALLENGE is specifically created and designed to take on the challenges inherent in these smaller, supporting roles.
Without question, the actors who have taken the DRAMA and COMEDY courses first in L.A., and THEN take SMALLER ROLE – BIGGER CHALLENGE are the actors who benefit the MOST from this course.
ALL of the approaches, tools, and principles learned in DRAMA & COMEDY COURSES are immediately applied to SMALLER ROLE – BIGGER CHALLENGE. It is when any of the basic, fundamental skills, and work is skipped, cheated, or left out, that your work unravels and what seems like a simple, obvious role a child could play, blows up in your face.
DON’T LET THIS BE YOU!
In SMALLER ROLE – BIGGER CHALLENGE:
You will be given a choice of small, simple, strong, supporting roles in advance to prepare.
- You will arrive as you would for the professional appointment & be taped;
- We will Review the Tapes and you will being given adjustments/direction;
- You will then Re-tape, applying the notes and directions.
Time permitting, you will also be handed a simple short role to perform ON THE SPOT and given 10-15 minutes to prepare.
Ted cannot emphasize enough the value of taking SMALLER ROLE – BIGGER CHALLENGE after taking DRAMA and/or COMEDY COURSE.
