For every laugh or bright moment that we share watching live theater, there are also stage characters that display a serious side. It is time to meet these characters and hear their stories. It is time to find out who they are and why they are. In this dynamic duos class students will be challenged to dive deep into character development and excavate underlying motivations. As students learn to trust their acting partner each will gain both the respect and support necessary to build an excellent scene. By learning to carefully breakdown the scene word by word, thought by thought, and action by action students will excel in acting abilities and grasp a depth of character as never before. Take this class if you are ready to challenge yourself.
