Welcome! We’re glad you’re interested in taking the Scene Study Studio Practice class with Mercedes Ruehl at HB Studio. This class is by invitation only. Therefore, in order to assess the skills and experience of each student, we ask that you please submit this form. Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis and you will be contacted on the status of your application. There is a possibility that you might be contacted at a later date to arrange an audition. If you have studied with Ms. Ruehl at HB Studio previously, you are welcome to register without submission or audition.
For professional performers who desire to return to, or maintain an ongoing relationship with a dynamic and fertile state of learning. The goal: to use the specifics of language, action, subtext, circumstance, and relationships in order to connect with the work at the deepest most personal level. You are encouraged to push boundaries with the aim of building ever more complex characters and situations, allowing and exploring what is powerful, unexpectedly revealed.
Expected rehearsal time outside of class: 3+ hours/week
*Please review registration prerequisites before enrolling (on the right-hand side of this page on desktop or below on mobile).
