Actors and Gene Frankel alumni Todd Rotundi and Mi

Actors and Gene Frankel alumni Todd Rotundi and Michael McGlone are the most recent names to be added to the list of celebrities participating in The Gene Frankel Theatre & Film Workshop's Summerfest Program. Rotundi, of "As the World Turns," will have the lead in "Pagans," the new Jaimie Yerkes film; McGlone played the middle brother in "The Brothers McMullen." The two will be guest speakers at separate seminars, hosted by Frankel, which will serve as question-and-answer periods between the celebrity and the workshop's students.

The program includes, among others, classes on scene study with Frankel, on-camera acting for film and television, improvisation and theatre games, Shakespeare, and the business side of acting. Guest and alumni artists already scheduled for this summer include James Earl Jones, F. Murray Abraham, and Kevin Kline.

Classes will run July 9-Aug. 24 at the Gene Frankel Theatre, located at 24 Bond St. An interview is required; call (212) 777-1767 for an appointment. For more information, visit
