Week 2 August 14th
This week we will be continuing with character study. We will be choosing a well-known character from a nursery rhyme and writing a biography on them. In addition, we will learn additional vocabulary for the theater.
Critiquing is very important to the actor as well. Other actors give their opinions on how a character can best be portrayed from the audience’s point of view. These critiques can either enhance or take away from an actor’s interpretation of a role with relation to the story being told in the script. We will, as a class learn how to critique a performance shown on video as a way of introduction.
We will going over warm up techniques as a way of preparing for the stage!
I try to leave a few minutes at the end of class for improv. Not only do the students look forward to it, but it helps them achieve confidence, self-esteem, and gives them a forum to release some energy.
I have our first test scheduled for Friday, August 25th. I will review all that is on the test on Thursday.
*Some of my students have asked about my Musical Theatre Club. The information was put on the school’s website this weekend so if you have an interest, please check there.
