LOS ANGELES - James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity will lead an acting workshop for adult performers on Sunday, May 18 in West Hollywood.

"With many features being shot, and performers wanting to make that transition into mainstream, I think this will be a great workshop for them to take," said Bartholet. "We will go over scene study, character development, improvisation skills, and we will tape a scene that the students pick from a mainstream film, television, or stage production."

Bartholet holds a degree from Los Angeles Valley College, where he won four awards for his stage work.  He has also acted in mainstream films and television shows and performed sketch comedy at The Improv, The Ice House and The Comedy Store.

On the porn side, Bartholet scored a 2008 AVN Award nomination for his non-sex role in SexZ Pictures' The Real Boogie Nights.  He recently wrapped another non-sex part in Not Bewitched XXX for X-Play and is now set to play Reuben Kincaid for the same producers in a porn spoof of The Partridge Family.

The workshop starts at 1 p.m. and runs approximately five hours. The price is $50.00 per student. Interested performers can sign up by calling (310) 652-0770 or via email to [email protected].
