ACTING                                                         Acting Level I/II

 


This class is for EVERY personality! There are those children who love to act and want the spotlight 24/7, and others who feel shy and need to break out of their shell.  This class will give you tons of time on the stage so you can find your “acting” process while building life-long skills. Learn how to properly explore the stage and understand how an actor works. Discover how to conquer fears, enhance public speaking, have an energized stage presence, use proper diction, enjoy collaboration and creativity and train like a professional. 
Through stage readings of famous plays, audition prep, monologue work, scene study and rehearsals that incorporate various acting methodologies that develop the actor internally as well as externally, our students will bring their own sense of self to the stage. Students will learn to listen to one another, use their imaginations and pursue actions and objectives ultimately allowing them to create their own personal process for becoming a strong actor and effective and empathetic person. 

Session 1: August through November performance in the Middle of November.

Session 2: November through February performance at the beginning of March.

Session 3: March through June performance at the beginning of June. 

Cost: $30 a month. Class meets once a week for an hour and a half every Monday 4:30pm to 6:00pm

The Borthwick family gathers in the living room after being asked to convene there by the self-appointed black sheep of the family, Chris.  He, however, has not shown up, and the family is none-too-eager to take time away from busy schedules.  Chris finally arrives via video and speaks to them from the television screen (real or constructed on stage with an actor inside).  We begin to see his perspective on how each family member has treated him, gaining an understanding of how poor communication and the family’s misguided intentions have led Chris to feel like an outsider. 

The Little Mermaid Jr. is a stage musical produced by Disney Theatrical, based on the animated 1989 Disney film of the same name and the classic story of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen about a mermaid who dreams of the world above the sea and gives up her voice to find love.

Beauty and the Beast is a musical with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton. Adapted from Walt Disney PicturesAcademy Award-winning 1991 animated musical film of the same name – which in turn had been based on the classic French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont –[1] Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a cold-blooded prince who has been magically transformed into an unsightly creature as punishment for his selfish ways. To revert into his true human form, the Beast must first learn to love a bright, beautiful young woman whom he has imprisoned in his enchanted castle before it is too late.

The setting is a counseling center for teenagers recovering from substance abuse.  One of their peers, Robert, has just died of an overdose.  Accident or suicide?  The atmosphere is tense and uneasy.  Finally, each young person speaks about his or her memory of Robert.  The dramatic monologues tell us a great deal about each speaker and the terrors of drug abuse.  Although Robert remains something of a mystery, his impact on the others is undeniable.  This is a hard-hitting work with an emotionally strong anti-drug message. 

The Wicked Witch has finally been caught and hauled into the Court of Once Upon a Time to stand trial. She's accused of casting a spell on Sleeping Beauty, attempting to poison Snow White, kidnapping Rapunzel, and trying to eat Hansel. Red Riding Hood heads up the prosecution with the Evil Stepmother of Cinderella fame serving as the defense attorney. The Three Little Pigs act as bailiffs, while Jack the Giant Killer is the guard. The judge? None other than the Fairy Godmother. The Wicked Witch's alleged victims are witnesses for the prosecution, along with the ever-popular Prince Charming. However, rigorous cross-examinations by the Evil Stepmother poke holes in many of their stories. Not to be outdone, Red has a field day tearing up the testimony of the witnesses for the defense who include the Gingerbread Man, Rumpelstiltskin, the ugly stepsisters, and the most dangerous of all, the Big Bad Wolf. The "Trial of the Wicked Witch" is a fresh, sassy take on the old folk tales, turning them on their heads. The best part is that the audience is the jury and gets to decide the outcome of the trial.

Auditions begin January 5th
