Beginning Acting, through pantomimes and improvisations, teaches the student the skills necessary to become an accomplished performer. Students will be expected to perform in the classroom and to read and see plays outside of the classroom.

The first semester will culminate in the production of one-act plays, memorized and performed before an audience. In the second semester, techniques will be put into practice through the production of a children’s play and a full-length play for English classes. Additional techniques to be taught include: set design, make-up, costuming, and properties.

In addition to performing, students will be required to see and read plays outside of class. It is recommended that this class be taken for a full year of acting practice.
