Theatre Arts - Acting 101
"acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances"
Theatre Arts is an ensemble class designed to accelerate student actors into serious scene study. Through the exploration of several texts including 365/365 by Suzan Lori Parks and Welcome to the Moon and Other Plays by John Patrick Shanely students will develop essential script analysis skills for performance. Through games and physical explorations, students will learn acting technique focused on bodywork and voice work. Projects include preparing audition appropriate monologues, partner scenes and short plays. The class is heavily suggested for 10th grade students wishing to pursue serious theatre study and 11th grade students who feel they need a little more practice before moving into the advanced class.
