    Jupiter, Fl: The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre recently announced that it will hold auditions for master acting classes at the Flagler Center in Stuart, Florida. The Flagler Center is a division of the Lyric Theatre and is located at 201 Flagler Avenue.

    Hollywood icon Burt Reynolds will helm this “Acting for the Camera” course, which mirrors the popular Master Class he presently teaches at the Burt Reynolds Institute in Jupiter. The new six-week course will begin on Tuesday, February 28th at 7 pm.

    When asked why he was bringing his expertise to the Treasure Coast, Reynolds said, “Many of my students travel great distances to attend class. There are so many talented actors north of the Palm Beach County line. I wanted to give them the same advantage as south Florida actors. Plus, I’ve always loved Stuart. It’s a great little city with a big appreciation for the arts.”

    Actors from Mr. Reynolds Master Class are considered to be among the most professional with casting directors in the area. Many of Reynolds students have booked roles on popular shows, such as Burn Notice, the Glades, Necessary Roughness and Magic City.

    Auditions are planned for Wednesday, February 8th, and Thursday, February 9th from 6 pm to 9 pm. Students must register in advance and class size is limited. A recent head shot and updated resume must be brought to the audition. If possible, actors should also submit head shots and resumes via email prior to their appointment. Auditioning actors will be required to do a cold read (scene provided) with an actor from the Burt Reynolds Institute.

    At the conclusion of the course, students will have an opportunity to perform in a showcase before family and friends. These showcases are popular events at The Burt Reynolds Institute and have recently been performed at The Lyric Theatre to the enjoyment of a packed house.

    To register, or for additional information, please contact or call 561 385-1584.
