CANCELLED - The Dramatic World of Live Theatre!
Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned thespian with a lengthy resume or emerging talent who has yet to trod the boards, come spend a week exploring the unique world of live theatre! Explore this collaborative art with others who share the same passion. During this week, we’ll explore the language of theatre, develop basic skills such as improv and pantomime, interact with scene partners and develop characters, block and direct scenes, and consider the use of tech elements. Students in this class will participate, interact, create, perform, observe, critique, collaborate, react, reflect, and so much more. While performance skills are the focus, there will also be time spent on other aspects of theatre such as design, directing, and production. July 10 - 14. Instructor: Beth Hansel.
