Advanced Theatre Arts
"Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." - Samuel Beckett
Advanced Theatre Arts is a course for serious theatre students. Juniors and seniors navigate through various performance projects that integrate script analysis with practical acting methods. The course pushes students to craft their own “acting process” and challenges them to recognize their strengths and weaknesses on and off stage. ATA provides the preparation of classical material appropriate for college and scholarship auditions. This half year course can be repeated by choice, as the content changes by semester. Students are assessed for their progress from project to project as much as for their professionalism, contributions to class discussions, written assignments and their collaboration among our community of artists.
