It’s why most of us decided to pursue acting - To "be" someone else. Walk in their shoes, speak in their voice, feel their pain, live their joy! – to become THE CHARACTER.
THE CHARACTER class gives acting students a foundation in creating truthful, dynamic characters for film, television or stage. It teaches techniques that find the character’s voice, physicality and psychology. Students work on strengthening their vocal and physical presence, creating characters that are believable yet completely different from themselves. Through exercises, improvisations, monologue and scene work, students acquire a comprehensive set of “acting tools” to draw upon when approaching a role. At the end of the 11-weeks, students will know how to bring a character to life and apply their techniques in scene work and performance.
THE SCRIPT – a beginning technique class
April 11 – May 20, 2019
THE SCRIPT is an 11-week technique class that emphasizes the role of the text in an actors’ performance. The words on the page are the basic inspiration for most performances and all actors must understand how to read a script, break down a script and bring a script to life. This class will give you exercises and techniques that will help you make character choices, play the action of the scene and relate emotionally to the given circumstances. Focus is placed on making strong choices that keep you engaged with your scene partner as well as using the language of the playwright to tell your character’s story.
