In this class your student will explore fundamental ways to express themselves as actors/actress through use of their voice, body, and imagination. The class will examine theatre etiquette, proper feedback, pantomime, vocal characterization, reader’s theatre, characterization using the Uta Hagen method to produce short scenes, and one act performance. Students will also be introduced to various other technical disciplines of the theater.
Theatre is a performance based class. This means that students will frequently be up in front a group of their peers, sometimes alone, but usually as part of a group. The class culminates in the production of a one-act play which will be performed in front of a live audience.
