The Overtime Theater is known for producing new and original works by local and Texas writers. As part of its educational outreach to the community, the Overtime Theater now houses River City Actors Studio run by actor and director Andrew Thornton. River City Actors Studio is a full-service acting education workshop that provides beginning as well as seasoned actors with the tools and skills they need in order to excel. Private and group instruction is available for aspiring actors aged 14 and older.
Thornton, a respected actor and director who is a native San Antonian, has worked with a number of actors who have appeared on stages throughout the city. His one-on-one classes and coaching will be offered on a weekly basis in areas such as:
• Public speaking
• College audition preparation for high school students
• Monologue development
• Character work
Additionally, Thornton will conduct group classes in scene study, one-act play workshops for middle school and high school groups, and free movement and improvisation.
“I’ve been coaching actors informally at my home for a few years now, and before that as part of the public school system. Everything seemed to line up to take it to the next level with the Overtime offering me their space. I’m really looking forward to working with more people in a greater diversity of areas,” Thornton said.
