Overview

This ten week course, a continuation from the Introduction to Acting course, will concentrate on working with a Director on the study of characters and individual scenes from a number of contemporary plays. 

Participants will call upon their learnings from the Introduction to Acting course to fully explore and develop character behaviours and traits and by the end of the course each person will possess the skills to better express and portray themselves in the characters within the chosen play.

Students will work closely as a team not only with each other but with the Director, Movement Coach, and Voice Coach.  At the end of this 10 week course, students will perform scenes to a selected audience.
