Students interested in acting got a treat last week when Theater Teacher Michael Bergman arranged for alumni Harlan Work '03 and Samantha Dockser '12 to speak in the Black Box Theater.
On Friday, Harlan, who is a professional actor, talked about his upcoming role in The Originalist, a play about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that premieres at DC's Arena Stage in March. He talked about the struggles of auditioning and encouraged students to be theater "triple threats" (singers, actors, and dancers). "Coming from Potomac, you're already very intellectually prepared to be an actor," he said. Meanwhile, sophomores in the Visual and Performing Arts Concentration (VPAC) received advice and perspective from Samantha, who is an acting major at the University of Miami. She noted that it's great to be an actor because "you're doing what you love all day!"
