About Classes

"Don't TELL me The Moon is Shining,

Show me The Glint of light

on Broken glass"


Visionbox does not believe in one approach to training. The pursuit of truth in acting and art is at the core of our intention and any technique or tool that helps the actor reveal this truth is of value to the work.

​Our studio training is centered around the Actor's Five Questions, taught by Earle Gister, Head of Acting at Yale School of Drama 1980-1999. This is a text based technique grounded in the exploration of complex theatre literature including, but not limited to, Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg, Classical and Contemporary American playwrights such as Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Clifford Odets, Lillian Hellman, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Horton Foote, John Guare, and finally Shakespeare.  Classes will focus on character development, behavior, objectives, actions and language. 


All Acting Classes are taught by Founding Artistic Director, Jennifer McCray Rincon.

Drop-In & On-Going Audition Acting Class


This class is designed to help actors at any level develop higher level audition skills including selection of material (contemporary and classical) and how to approach an audition as acting, not performance. We apply the same 5 Questions acting technique to the text analysis and process of creating a compelling and powerful audition. Classes will be held from 9a-12p every Saturday beginning January 28th.

Jennifer McCray Rincon, instructor for this class, has over 30 years of teaching experience with student and professional actors, a major part of that being work on audition material. While Head of Acting at the National Theatre Conservatory at the DCPA, she auditioned an average of 500 students per year for the 3 year Graduate program. She also directed the 3rd year class audition showcase in New York and Los Angeles for almost 20 years. Jennifer continues to coach actors applying to colleges, grad school, and professional companies throughout each Visionbox season.


Individual drop-in classes are $75, or pay for a series of 5 classes for $250.

Any other questions or concerns can be addressed by emailing with "Audition Class" in the subject line.

All acting classes are taught by Jennifer McCray Rincon, founding Artistic Director of Visionbox Studio Theatre.

All other instructors are working professionals in their respective disciplines


All artists, actors, and students interested in classes must sign up for an audition. Auditions should include two contrasting monologues; one contemporary, and one Shakespearean verse. The audition is a way for us to get to know each other and to ensure you are placed in a class that will be both challenging and suited to your current level of experience and training. Please do not hesitate to contact us for details regarding this process!


Visionbox will accept up to 16 actors for each class.


We also accept directors and playwrights into our classes. Directors and writers should also schedule an interview with Ms. Rincon and our staff for more information on the class they are interested in.
