Fall 2011 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
If you have ever been interested in acting this is where to begin. This course is designed to explore the intellectual and sensory skills needed to create and develop a character. It will focus on aligning the mind and the body to work harmoniously together in order to process and convey the message of the character and the playwright. We will study different methods of character development and experiment with the "who, what, where, when, why and how" of acting. Course work will include class exercises, acting assignments, assigned readings, class projects, and the creation and maintenance of an actor's notebook.
