Gallery 7 Theatre hosts the third workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 23 in its Actor’s Bootcamp series.

The workshop, called The Actor’s Toolbox, runs for three consecutive Tuesdays from 7 to 10 p.m. at the theatre’s rehearsal hall at #100 – 34595 Third Ave.

The Actor’s Toolbox will focus on building foundational acting and performance techniques that every actor should know.

The aim is to graft these techniques into the actor’s professional DNA so they are instinctual. Skills learned in previous workshops in the Actor’s Bootcamp series will be applied and further explored, though previous participation is not necessary.

Leading the workshop will be Erla Faye Forsyth, a graduate of Studio 58 in Vancouver. She has performed in numerous productions over the years at Pacific Theatre in Vancouver, including The Foreigner and How to Write a New Book for the Bible, for which she received Jessie Richardson awards.

Other credits include It’s a Wonderful Life for the Arts Club and Since You Left Us for Presentation House Theatre.

“This is a unique training opportunity for both the experienced and emerging performing artist,” said Ken Hildebrant, Gallery 7 Theatre’s artistic director.
