The next step for acting enthusiasts. This class will teach you the fundamentals of working with a script: What is the hidden information found in a play? How can we make the words our own, and what happens in moments of silence? Students will explore text analysis, voice work, character work, collaborating with a scene partner, and scene work based on acclaimed scripts. If you’ve had a taste of acting and want to dig a little deeper, join us in a words-based "excavation."
