Acting Essentials and Performance Lab: In this two part course, students first learn the fundamentals and elements of comedic performance in a playful, group environment. Over the course of four weeks, they’ll explore the technical aspects of acting as well as the building blocks of vocal, physical, and emotional expression, listening, agreement, making choices, and working in an ensemble.
In the second 4 weeks, students will enter the Performance Lab and gain valuable performance experience through being directed in multiple comedy sketches. Students will be assigned scripts on week five and work on memorization, blocking, characterization, and execution to get a feel for acting in a sketch comedy show.
