Advanced Acting (Act III)

$195
Ages 11+


In this class actors will explore in detail three major focus areas: 1) The Mind of the Character: Studying advanced methods of acting and learning how to create Goal-driven characters.  2) The Body of a Character: A step by step approach to fully embodying a character (and how to create a physical "trigger" to snap into character!) 3) The Character as Part of an Ensemble: Developing advanced creative skills to reacting to others in the scene (and in the class) around you.  These three components will be studied in application to each half of the course-- Part 1: Monologues, Part 2: Scene Study.  We will often rely on improvisation to explore concepts before applying them to text. Students must have prior acting experience despite their age.

Adult Monologue & Scene Study – Elizabeth Dimon
January 16 - March 20
Mondays (10 weeks)
5:30pm – 7:00pm
$225.00


A play is merely made up of scenes. Many scenes, all coming together to form a story. Acting is really listening and really responding and telling that story. Sure it's about finding your light and cheating out and being loud enough and changing costume and sound and lights and everything else. But it's really about listening and responding. And in this class that will be the focus as you work with a scene partner on a scene of your choosing. Start reading some plays, find a scene and bring it to class and let's work on it together.

Why a class focusing on monologues only? Because a monologue is a small scene unto itself. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. And a number of things can happen to you in the course of that one or two minute monologue. And I would love to help you find every one of them. Also, if you are auditioning for anything in the future, most theatres will want you to perform a monologue or two, so let's work on those so you have them ready when you need one! 
Please bring some monologue choices with you.
