Full Play Rehearsal Workshop
If you have ever wondered what process an actor goes through to transform words written on a page to a fully formed, three dimensional character; transforming the role from "play-acting" to true story-telling, this workshop is for you.
Instead of utilizing open scenes or excerpts from plays, this workshop will use an entire play to help student-actors learn how to analyze text, understand objectives and obstacles, interact with their scene partners, and truly create believable characters that can be performed on stage. Having access to the full arc of the story, and to be able to portray the full life of the character from beginning to end is the primary focus of this workshop.
Based on the enrollment, our instructor-director, Sunam Ellis, will select a play that best fits the class, and over the next 6 weeks, work with students on various aspects of acting to get the students ready for a performance.
Of course, we will be gathering and rehearsing the play virtually, because, pandemic.
When: Oct 28th through Dec 06th, 2020
Wednesdays 6:30PM to 8:30PM
Sundays 2:00PM to 5:00PM
