An intensive introduction to scripted work through preparation and performance of scenes and monologues. Emphasis on learning effective rehearsal techniques and expanding the actor’s range. Requires approximately 3–5 hours of rehearsal with an assigned partner outside of class each week. Taken together or in succession, this course and Intro to Acting constitute essential training in the basics of the actor’s craft.
Students working singly or in pairs in front of the class will be allowed to wear clear plastic masks similar to face shields, provided by The Theatre Lab, for the duration of their presentation. Everyone must wear regular masks–ideally N95 or KN95–except when presenting work for the class.
