Students in this class will focus on scene development through self-directed group work, complex theater games, and script work to develop broader character choices. This course will teach students how to take blocking notes in a script and to understand the motivation behind their directed movement. Script work will include studying scenes from classic pieces through contemporary theater. Script work will also include students “directing” one another, helping them to focus on applying movement and motivation to a scene. Students will spend time on developing confidence in “cold readings,” which are common for auditions, and choosing a monologue for an audition situation. The last day of class includes an informal showcase for family and friends.
