Frank LicatoUPCOMING PROJECTS

SUMMER ACTING INTENSIVE***SCENE STUDY CLASS

with DIRECTOR FRANK LICATO

TUESDAYS 6:30PM TO 8:30PM JUNE 24TH - JULY 29TH

SHETLER STUDIOS 244 W 54th St #12, NY

The session is $250.00 or $200.00 for former students.

"Frank works within that rare environment where creativity is a balance of seriousness and playful freedom, rooted in a trustworthy sense of truth and expanded and challenged by boundless imagination." - Michael Ornstein, Chuck Marstein on Sons of Anarchy

"Frank Licato is a wonderful director, actor and teacher in that his stage and TV career has been a stellar combination of acting and directing.  He gives his colleagues first hand knowledge because he has been there and done that.  His work is gritty, truthful and on the money." - Richard Vetere, Pulitzer nominated playwright/screenwriter”    

"Frank Licato is a gifted director, teacher. He has a great rapport with both beginners and professionals alike. Frank is always guided by the principle, "if it doesn't work for the actors, it doesn't work".  It's refreshing to watch him work, because he has such a strong understanding of the play AND the actor's process." - Gino DiIorio, Playwright and  Director of Theatre Arts Program, Clark University

Class will be limited to 10 students.  Everyone will work each class.  Scene Study is the highest form of class work an actor can do.

The cornerstone of my work, both in rehearsal and coaching, is to help the actor find his or her own unique voice to ignite the text, while at the same time creating a grounded, motivated and honest performance.

 

Having worked as an actor, I understand the actor's process and language. Being a director and having watched countless auditions, I know what will get you noticed.  I give practical advice and a safe space to help actors do their best work, as well as advice on monologue selection and general audition techniques. 

 

 

"Having recently worked with Frank Licato in his scene study class,  I have never felt more empowered and reminded of the thoroughness of the process of character. It was incredibly rewarding. Frank is an excellent guide and teacher who will walk you through a scene moment to moment, and help you find the little truths that make a performance great. Frank reminds you of the roots of acting; the reason I fell in love with acting in the first place. I highly recommend Frank, he is thoroughly dedicated to you, the performer!" - Monica Trombetta, Actress/Board Member- NY, SAG-AFTRA
