Students work on assigned scenes and monologues, bringing them in at different stages of rehearsal. Truthful, expressive moment-to-moment behavior, self-observation, and a point of view: these are the tools that are taught through exercises and scene work. By exploring these elements actors learn to make specific choices. These choices allow them to play characters in a truthful & believable way. Learning proper technique allows the freedom of personal interpretation. This curriculum stems from the teaching works of Sanford Meisner & Uta Hagan.
