Advanced Topics in the Performing Arts: The Audition and the Actor
Fall 2017 quarter
Students must have significant experience in acting in which they have developed good performance skills and a strong work ethic. Students with traditional or non-traditional performance backgrounds are strongly urged to apply.
Have you ever auditioned for a show and weren't quite sure how? Or, do you become very nervous because you feel you aren't well-prepared? This program is a chance for students to learn new skills and practice the art of auditioning. This is a practical hands-on program. Curriculum includes: preparing for the audition, how to choose a monologue, cold readings and improvisation technique, and audition etiquette. Students should be prepared to spend considerable out-of-class time to memorize and rehearse their monologues. Students will learn learn how to choose and create a portfolio of classic, comic, and dramatic monologues and will present their memorized and rehearsed selections each week in technique and critique workshops. Participants should have a strong interest in performance, acting, and be able to work independently and collaboratively. The newly-trained actors will present their best audition monologues, for friends and family, in a showcase at the end of the quarter.
