Fall Acting Classes 2018
Sundays, October 7th – December 16th (no class Nov. 25th)
The fall classes focus on building your theatrical skills: improv, scene study, and monologues. Small class size means plenty of individual instruction, and the supportive, high-energy environment brings out the best in every student. Whether you’re checking us out for the first time, or a summer camp veteran looking to hone your craft, these classes will take your acting to the next level. All classes end with a showcase performance in December.
Acting & Improvisation – Sunday 12:30-2pm
This improvisation and scene study class gives budding actors an overview of the art of performing. By playing fun-filled improvisational theatre games, we will tap into the creative juices of each student while teaching basic acting skills: clarity of thought and action, mental agility, spontaneity, actively listening and responding, and creative problem solving. There will be a showcase for parents during the final class.
Scene Study & Acting Technique – Sunday 2:45-4:15pm
This scene study class gives students practice preparing a role in a play. We will delve into the core of the scenes through rehearsals and improvisational games that teach basic acting skills. Students will learn to research and explore their character, balance logic with imagination, identify their character’s journey, collaborate with scene partners, and rehearse productively.
Monologues and Audition Strategies – Sunday 4:30-6:30pm
Spend this autumn selecting, rehearsing and performing monologues that showcase your strengths as a performer! In this intensive class, we will delve into acting techniques, explore textual analysis, physically train the actor’s body and voice, and discuss/practice audition strategies. Class concludes with a showcase of monologues.(Ninth graders accepted at permission of instructor.)
One-Day Intensives & Field Trips
During the fall, we also offer several One-day intensives, focusing on skills like stage combat, improv, clowning, and Commedia dell’Arte. We also offer some fun Field Trips!
