Shia LaBeouf is opening a free theatre school. In a video posted to Twitter, the actor and performance artist invited would-be thespians to join him at the Slauson Multipurpose Center in LA every Saturday, where he will be until he presumably gets bored and does something else.

"You don't have to be an actor,” the Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle star told his followers. “You don't have to ever have thought about being an actor. You do, however, have to have a story that you're willing to share.” Whether the story has to be your own, is not yet clear.

What exactly will happen at the Slauson Recreation Center -- co-founded by Bobby Soto and Shelley Mitchell -- remains unknown. The school’s website has promised “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.” Which probably means people doing the Alexander Technique while eating steaks with their bare hands. Or something.
