Looking to pick up a new skill this winter? Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts is presenting Everybody Can Act!, an adult acting class open to those ages 19 to 99.

During the Monday evening workshop, Allen O'Reilly, Bay Street Theater's new Director of Education and Community Outreach, will cover the basics of theater. Participants will learn about everything from focus to trust, and ensemble-building through a series of activities, improvisations, and brief sequences. The budding thespians will even have a chance to show what they have learned during a performance open to family and friends on the final day of class.

"The class is custom-designed to the individual participant's specific goals," O'Reilly relayed, "and it will be thoroughly engaging for both beginners wanting to take a 'dare,' as well as many seasoned actors. Participants will work on a monologue as well as a scene over the eight-week class."

Classes will take place Monday, January 28 through Monday, March 18, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

O'Reilly has over thirty years experience as an educator and professional actor, appearing in Sleepy Hollow, TURN: Washington's Spies, Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius, The Assassin's Code and the upcoming Anhedonia. He served as Artistic Director at Young Audiences of Atlanta, Education Director at Georgia Shakespeare and most recently the Education Programs Manager at Cleveland Play House - where he also acted. Additionally, O'Reilly was an associate artist at Georgia Shakespeare for 24 seasons.

Everybody Can Act! is $375 per student. To sign up, call the Bay Street Theater Administration Office at 631-725-0818.

Bay Street is located at 1 Bay Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, visit www.baystreet.org.
