THE 010A ~ Introduction to Acting

Instructor: Sarah Carleton Associate Professor of Theatre More . . .

How does one effectively persuade an audience of a fictional truth? How does an actor transform into a character and communicate it to the audience? What is acting? This course begins to answer these questions. Students participate in exercises to increase self-awareness and to heighten perceptions of human behavior, and learn the basics of script analysis and development of vocal and physical skills through practice and performance. Students read Uta Hagen and attend a minimum of three Theatre Department productions. Registration is restricted to Theatre majors and minors.
