This year-long foundational class promotes enjoyment and appreciation for all aspects of theater. Classwork focuses on the exploration of beginning scene work used to introduce students to acting and character development. The course provides opportunities for students to develop skills in critical listening and thinking, as well as stage presence, ensemble work, and aesthetic awareness culminating in periodic classroom and/or public performances. Students will participate in field trips to see live theater.
This year-long class enhances the concepts and experiences learned in Acting I. This class has an emphasis on performance with required participation in at least one show per semester. Students will also write and direct class projects. And of course - Improv!
