Shia LaBeouf is opening a theatre school – and anyone can come

‘You don’t have to be an actor, you don’t need to have ever thought about being an actor’

Shia LaBeouf is opening a theatre school in LA called the Slauson Recreation Centre. The actor announced on Twitter that all you need to participate is to have a story that you’re willing to share. If you don’t like it, you can leave, but if you’re willing to come back, then he’ll be there every Saturday at 9am “building shit with whoever shows up”.

Slauson Rec has been founded by LaBeouf, Bobby Soto and Shelley Mitchell. On the theatre school’s site, it’s described as “an unconventional, experimental, devised theater. We write performance not text. We develop cutting-edge material in-house, through improvisation, nonfictional acting, and collaborative group work.”

The first class is a meet and greet, and opens this Saturday on Compton Ave, LA. Check out here if you want to sign up.
