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.

(10 weeks)
Mondays

A monologue may be a small part of an entire play, but it is a small story unto itself. It has a beginning, a middle and an end.
Come learn with me how to perfect that story, whether for an audition or to further your study.
Class will include voice and body work in conjunction with the monologue.  Monologues will be assigned, but also please bring choices if you have something you would like to work on.
A final presentation for friends and family will be on December 18, 2017.
