“The techniques and mindsets that make up the foundation of acting are useful in any profession, and for any endeavor,” Smith states in his promotional material. “Smith promotes the development of a creative process and a reinvestment in that process for every project you take on, artistic or otherwise.”
Smith earned a Master’s of Fine Arts in Acting from West Virginia University, where he studied under alumni of the prestigious American Conservatory in San Francisco. He went on to hone his craft in Chicago as part of “A Crew of Patches,” a traveling theater company that performed Shakespeare for students. Locally, Smith was active onstage at The Bucyrus Little Theatre, The Crawford Theater Company, The Galion Community Theater, OSU Mansfield, and The Renaissance Theater Company.
“I knew Scott many years ago when he was active at Bucyrus Little Theatre. He was an awesome actor, and we felt his loss when he left Bucyrus to make theater his career. I'm thrilled that he's coming back to share his talents with us once again!” Cindy Light, president, Bucyrus Little Theatre
According to Smith’s promotional material, for whatever “heady” concepts exist in modern acting theory, Smith develops a simple, real-world way of framing them. He meets his students where they are, whether they just have a simple curiosity about acting, or they are a seasoned professional revisiting the fundamentals. Smith encourages his students, wherever their experience, to trust themselves, their imaginations, and the practical tools the craft of acting provides them.
“I have worked on many shows with Scott and not only is he extremely talented, he is also a true professional and takes his craft very seriously. I am personally looking forward to taking his master class and I am so excited that BLT is able to offer this type of class for any adult who is interested in improving their skills both on the stage and in their personal life.” Patty Schwall, vice president, Bucyrus Little Theatre
