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? We will learn how to answer these questions during rehearsals of an edited full length play.

Our aim is 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, for conflicting needs and obstacles are what create Acting!   You’ll delve deep into voice, characterization, speech, and thematic communication, through script and scene study. Script choice will be finalized after enrolment in the fall, and specific casting will be done internally through studio work.

 

  *Performances: 3 to 6:  this class performs a scene from their play at the Winter Showcase; their full-class production is mounted in April; and then a brand new piece is worked for performance in the spring Get STAGEstruck! show at Markham Theatre.  Additional rehearsal and production hours will be required when mounting the spring shows.  Ovation! often secures 1 to 3 additional school-touring performances of the senior play in elementary or high schools in the area.  Information on  this will be provided in the fall after the play has been chosen and contacts/dates arranged.
