Scenes Workshop

Description of Course:

In, DRAM 3356 Acting 3, “Scene to Scene”, the student will have the opportunity to take specific scenes and repeat their performance, in order to create different characters. The student will then be allowed to focus on character development and script analysis, rather than memorization. This allows the student to explore the text in depth, experience how dynamics and timing affect each character and script, the importance of experimentation to develop skills and truly understand the actor’s process.

Students will be responsible for finding their monologues, duets or scenes. A good actor is well read and works hard. It is the love of what we do that makes it sometimes appear to be play, rather than discipline and dedication. As stated by Ed Hooks, “Acting is doing!”.
