How do you take a play from the page to the stage? This 11-week course leads students through the process of creating a staged production. Through guided activities and games, students will practice basic acting skills such as stage presence, vocalization, improvisation, creating a character, and working with a script. The class culminates in a final performance of a finished play for an invited audience. Class fee includes a free ticket and a backstage tour for the student and a parent to one show in the 2012-2013 Matinee Series.
