What's Included

In this workshop, we focus on truthful, vulnerable scene work. The exercises are geared toward longer, relationship-based scenes that are not jokey, but still funny in the most human ways. The goal is to be simple, generous and you. Irene White graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. She has studied at the Second City in Chicago, iO West, Groundlings and UCB-LA. Her Chicago theatre work includes The All-Female Bonanza at Live Bait Theatre and Chamber Music at the Transient Theatre. Her Los Angeles theatre credits include Blue Window, The Women, The Red Coat and her one-woman show Open to the Public. Irene can be seen in lots of commercials and in episodes of The Middle, The Millers, Gilmore Girls, Friends, Will & Grace, and Scrubs. Her recent film credits include Men, Women & Children, Parkland, and Green Hornet.
