White Pines Young Actors Studio: level 2
Jan 20 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Professional Training for the Total Artist

Level 2- Creating a Role

For Ages: 10-17

Students will tackle one age-appropriate contemporary scene which will help them to connect the blocks of foundational technique that they have been working on thus far. Actors will learn to develop imaginary circumstances, deepen relationships, fight for objective and make bold action choices.  We will then consider the essential task of collaboration: the interplay between actor(s) and the director, and the strategies we can employ to work with directors creatively, saying “yes, and” while being true to our own ideas. We will be visited by a noted director from the professional theater as a special seminar during this class.

Open to students who have completed level 1, or by permission of instructor.
