"I found my confidence while taking this workshop and my desire to focus more on acting."

 

Theater is designed to give performing artists a chance to delve deeply into the process of acting and creating theater. Theater students utilize intensely collaborative exercises to create a sense of ensemble and the “phantom note” that develops when artists truly work together as a unit. In this workshop students use improvisation techniques to awaken their creative voices and overcome inhibitions as performers. Students create pieces of theater as a group, using movement, text, and music. Students delve into some “Method” acting and work with sense memory to discover the unique emotional palette that makes up our individual identity as actors. Students will perform work written by writing students, as well as explore contemporary (and some classical) plays, scenes, and monologues as the basis of in-depth text work.
