Mix together physical exploration, improvisation, acting styles and techniques, and you are on your way to becoming a complete actor! Actors will learn to control and manipulate the body and voice to create well rounded characters. Character development, tactics, and analyzing text will be some of the skills practiced. Students will show off their craft through exercises and scenes on the last day of class. (Due to the Columbus Day weekend, there will be no class on October 11.)
