Mining the Script-Adult Acting
Fridays March 10-April 28
Instructor: David Silverthorn
In this class students will study how the words on the page become their actions on the stage. Concentration will be put on the why, where and what that drives a character and how this is portrayed by the actor. With the instructor students will break down a script and explore the character's intentions behind the written word. A great class for beginners wanting a deep dive into the world of acting to the experienced actor looking for that extra edge to add to their craft. Actors are encouraged to bring a 1 minute monologue to the first class.
