1. Auditioning/Choosing Monologues
2. Vocal/Focus Exercises
5. Duet/Group Work
*Requires audition/application/interview and teacher approval.
This acting concentrated class teaches the student acting by exposing them to a variety of theaters including Sanford Meisner’s and Constantine Stanislavski’s. By learning the different theories and basics, the student will be able to develop their own personal style for character development. The student will spend a year in an acting studio atmosphere, experimenting with different genres of theatre ranging from children’s theatre to serious historical dramas. In addition, upon completion of this course they will have headshots, an acting resume, and a developing portfolio. The actor will spend time working on improvisation, monologues, as well as scene work. Requires audition/application/interview and teacher approval.
This fine arts class is designed to give students a peek into the world of drama. It is a survey course that gives a broad overview of all the aspects of production. Teamwork, improvisation, and basic acting skills are highlighted in the first semester, as well as a brief study in theatrical history. Students will be expected to perform monologues, scenes and improvisations in a studio setting. The second semester will cover the technical side of theatre: Lighting, Sound, Costumes, Make-up, Publicity, Props, and Sets. Practical hands-on opportunities will be offered to demonstrate skills learned once classroom terminology and safety information is mastered.
