Perfect for beginning performers or those with a bit of experience, this improvisation and acting 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. While rehearsing short scenes, students will practice analyzing scripts, building a character, balancing logic with imagination, and collaborating with scene partners.
While I and other Traveling Players auditioned for the school play, I could see the improvements that they made and skills that they learned. A bit of Traveling Players was in every audition they did. All of us scored fun and great roles in the school play and enjoyed acting on the stage (but it would have been even better if we were acting outdoors).
