The Principles Of Acting
This semester we will be working on both contemporary and classical monologues and scenes, continuing our journey of the Principles and Foundations of Acting. MTA resident acting coach DEBORAH MATHEWS will teach each student how to become more present in your character’s wants and needs. Your acting journey will begin with online lessons, eventually moving into in person studio lessons, adhering to recommended state safety guidelines as necessary. Online lessons will be scheduled out as full class, semi-private, and private lessons depending on individual rehearsal needs and at the instructor’s discretion. For the first time ever, the material learned in this class will culminate in two showcase performances, in conjunction with the talented kids from our “Broadway Blast” Series. Performance of all monologues and/or scenes will be optional, not mandatory.
Classes will meet for 11 Weeks, 3 Hours a Week, Saturdays from 3:00-6:00 pm, beginning Saturday, September 12th, and ending Saturday, November 21st.
Performances will take place at 7:00 pm on Monday and Tuesday, November 23rd and 24th.
