Students will work on cold readings and advanced scenes from established playwrights and screenwriters and will work to stretch their range as an actor with a contrasting monologue, all with an eye towards further preparation for auditions.

The scenes and monologues will provide a helpful challenge for the students, to assist in advancing their training as actors and in developing a greater awareness of their unique qualities.  Some of the techniques include:

  • Detailed textual analysis
  • Developing the ability to memorize and embody the text through Active Analysis
  • Physical/emotional exploration of character
  • Exploring the emotional journey of the character through the scene or monologue
  • Finding variety in the work through communication and competition between characters

NOTES: Beginner I is a pre-requisite for this class. This is not an on-camera class; however, students’ work may be recorded at the discretion of the instructor. Students will receive a syllabus at the first class, as well as a written evaluation at the end of the semester.
