A foundational course that introduces the basic concepts of characterization through improvisational exercises, some reading and text analysis, and scene study. During the semester, the course works on the development of the actor’s voice, such as vocal range, improved articulation, and the ability to use the voice as an instrument.

The focus this season will again be improv games (they really pay dividends during shows and rehearsals), but we are also going to focus on acting for the camera. Many of our young actors have had fun working with Experimental Film, and they have requested to do more serious work in front of the camera.

The physical aspect of acting, presence on the stage, training and development of the actor’s body to develop optimal range of movement and creative potential for the actor is also integral to the program. The elements of dance are key to this process: use of time, space, and imagination will play a vital role in our view of Movement Theater.

PERFORMANCE: Students will be involved in at least one performance during the semester in collaboration with our sister program, Arts Enter School of Dance.

Fall Semester Cost: $75.00
When: Fridays from 5:00 – 6:30 pm. Some Saturday and Sunday practices close to performance date.
Beggar’s Christmas Performance: December 9 and 10
