Theater I Q1
During this course you will complete sections dedicated to History of the Theatre, Script and Plot Analysis, basic Material Selection, using the instruments of Voice and Body and Audition Advice. In our daily lives we all experience theatrical elements. These elements are evident in political campaigns, holiday celebrations, sports events, religious ceremonies, children's make-believe, as well as in the dances and rituals of primitive peoples. However, most of us do not consider these events to be theatrical in nature. This course will demonstrate that these events are directly linked to theatre and performance. Get ready to explore the structure of a script and the importance of plot analysis. What does it mean to classify a script as male or female? Have you ever wanted to audition but weren't sure how to begin the process? This course will teach you the basics of a successful audition and how to avoid making common mistakes with voice and pronunciation. Let's get started...everyone, break a leg!
