Acting - The Play
This is an exciting opportunity to work with a director to explore a single contemporary play over the whole term and gain a practical understanding of the rehearsal process. This course is best suited for students who have completed our other evening courses Acting - An Introduction, Acting – Working with Text or Acting – Further Work with Text and want to move to the next level, or for those who have some experience in acting on stage, and want to put the scene-study skills that they have learnt into practice on a single, longer piece of work.
You will be cast in a speaking role, explore text analysis, character development, taking direction and ensemble storytelling, and you will work towards a semi-staged performance in the final session for an invited audience. This is an excellent opportunity to work on an entire play from start to finish and to gain a wide-ranging practical understanding of the rehearsal and performance process.
