Acting Out On Tybee Island

Acting classes on Tybee IslandThere’s no such thing as acting out on Tybee Island.  To us, there’s nothing too strange or unusual or too over the top.  About the only thing that perplexes us is why anyone would want to be normal?  Well, for those of you who might get a “You ain’t acting right” comment from folks you see every day, we have a great solution.  How about acting classes for adults right here on Tybee Island?

On Tuesdays and Thursdays in February you can take the stage and emote your little heart out.  Each session is from 5 pm-7 pm and the cost for the eight sessions is $100.  Tell your shrink to take a hike for the month and become a super star.  For more info and registration, please call Renee’ DeRosset (912) 596-4992 or Kim Trammell (912) 228-0357.

And, for all you “Method” actors, let Mermaid Cottages set the scene.  We have cozy, restored and historic cottages available all the way back to 1897.  Just pick your favorite era and we’ll help you feature your best side from the 20s, 30s. 40s, 50s and more.  Just think.  You could even schedule a beach ecology tour to take you out to Little Tybee where you can swath yourself in billowy white and then imagine yourself as Lawrence of Arabia (no, you can’t strip our linens off the bed to get your Sheik freak on)!

What better place to learn how to act than here where our islanders do it so naturally.  You won’t find a better collection of characters for inspiration and there’s not too much you can do that will elicit stares of haughty derision from passers-by.  Isn’t it time you take command of the role for which you were born to play?  We’re always acting out on Tybee Island and we’re ready for your close-up.
