This introductory course will sharpen basic skills necessary for all actors (concentration, imagination, observation, physical and vocal awareness, memorization, and risk) and will introduce Constantin Stanislavskiâ€™s approach to character analysis and portrayal through various means, including the first steps of Sanford Meisnerâ€™s repetition exercises. Scene work will vary from solo performances to scripted work, with a focus on contemporary plays. Coursework will culminate in a public performance. Outside reading, writing, and rehearsing will be required.
