Teen actors will participate in this intensive 6-week workshop giving them a glimpse at the discipline and the developing skills in theatrical training, auditioning, and putting on a full One Act staged performance.
Students will explore the art of acting through theatre games, the audition process, scene study and breakdown. Actors will work on a full one act play. This is a great class for honing performance skills. This course is designed to introduce the art of memorization and character development to drama students. Actors will read and analyze a script in a group setting and then block and produce their own production. This class will also explore audition techniques for professional programs and work in the field of acting.
This is a fun filled acting workshop where young teen actors will not only learn acting techniques, but these same techniques will help them become a powerful, successful force in the world, by learning to become secure in their own individuality. This workshop will also help to broaden the young actors own personal communication skills.
