Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach, Florida, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 15. Tickets are $10, available only at the door. It will be co-hosted by film historian and lecturer Caroline Breder-Watts and Actor’s Rep artistic director Bob Carter.

    Caroline Breder-Watts is a veteran of local public radio and a film historian and lecturer.  She said, “Film is our most popular art form, and there’s so much to learn from its more than 100-year history.  I look forward to sharing these clips with young people who may be seeing them for the first time, but I think it will also be a special evening for adults who have fond memories of the times they have spent in movie houses”.
    “For acting students, learning about film is a very important part of their growth and ibtas development”, said Actor’s Rep's Bob Carter.  “Having a greater knowledge of actors, directors, cinematographers, and all the elements of moviemaking is a great advantage to anyone pursuing a career in the performing arts”.
    Bob Carter’s Actor’s Workshop & Repertory Company (Actor’s Rep) first gained attention at its original location, 308 South Dixie, as an innovative, avant garde theatre and actors’ and technicians’ training ground in 1980. In an intimate workshop setting, actors’ skills were developed based on the work of Stanislavski, Strasberg, and other renowned teachers. The group formed a repertory company which produced seldom seen, daring, thought-provoking plays to high critical acclaim in its 99-seat theatre-in-the-round.  It also developed the first summer acting camps for children and teens in Palm Beach and Broward counties.
    Bob Carter’s Actor’s Workshop & Repertory Company, Inc. is incorporated in the state of Florida to provide education and training in the theatre arts and to develop professional theatrical productions using primarily local talent. The corporation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible.
