THTR 24 - Acting

Foundation of the acting curriculum; theatre games, open scenes, monologues, and scenes are used to explore and acquire a comprehensive process by which to create and sustain a truthful, imaginative, and physical character on stage. Stanislavsky's "method of physical action" and Uta Hagen's "10 Questions" are explored. Application of the concepts of "objective, actions, and qualities of action" are applied to scripted material. Students rehearse and perform scenes from American playwrights. Priority given to theatre arts majors/minors. (4 units)

"We make sure you understand the steps of the craft so that you can engage in the artistry of acting." - Aldo Billingslea
