Introduction to Acting
April 16 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Eastern
Introduction to Acting engages students in the art and craft of acting at an introductory level through focus on concentration, imagination, and the actor’s physical and vocal response. Through actor exercises, theatre games, improvisation, and open scene work, students will gain an appreciation for the working habits of actors and how they approach rehearsal and performance.
