Adult Acting ~ Performance

"Our Comedy of Errors!"

~ for beginner through to advanced students wishing to develop their acting skills in an exciting training environment where you'll produce an evening of scenes, monologues, or short plays for performance

 

Explore the core elements of drama. You’ll examine voice, body, movement, characterization, speech, and thematic communication, through script and scene study.  When preparing for a role every actor asks 6 questions: WHO AM I? WHERE AM I? WHEN AM I? WHAT DO I WANT? WHAT IS MY OBSTACLE? HOW DO I GET WHAT I WANT?

 

 

    SEASON/COURSE SCHEDULE

this course runs for 120 minutes

on SUNDAYS 2:30pm to 4:30pm

(schedules are subject to change)

 

    **Course Fees: please inquire.

We will learn how to answer these questions during class work and rehearsals of our chosen materials.  The Course Director, in consultation with the cast, will determine a theme or through-line for the season’s performance, and together you will choose a variety of monologues, dialogues, scenes, sketches and/or short plays to produce in performance – called “Our Comedy of Errors!”  Our aim for each piece will be to achieve complete integration with the inner life of the character . You will learn to experience the strong forces that drive him or her, how to pursue that powerful want, and how to recognize what is stopping you – because conflicting needs and obstacles are what create Acting!  Material choices will be finalized after enrolment in the fall, and specific casting will be done internally through studio work.

 

*Performances:  One:  this class production is mounted in April; - date is TBA.  Additional rehearsal and production hours will be required when mounting the spring show.
