Grades : 10,11,12,PG
This introductory class builds on the skills learned in Theater Foundations but is open to any student who would like to learn more about acting on the modern stage. Students explore how to prepare a role, to create a character and to analyze dramatic text. Classes will include improvisational games, acting exercises and will culminate in the performance of scenes taken from contemporary dramatic literature. Our sources will be the techniques and teachings of Constantine Stanislavski, Viola Spolin and Uta Hagen to name a few. Attendance at a specified school and/or professional performance required.
