Adult Intro to Acting
Gina Braswell, Instructor
Monday, 7:00-8:30pm At the Arts HUB in Lafayette.
If you have found an interest in acting but are unsure where to start, this adult introduction to acting class is the perfect place for you! This ten-week class is specifically designed to teach the fundamentals of acting through an introduction to contemporary American texts. Each weekly session will include an interactive discussion on a specific building block of the acting process, a warm-up, and theatrical exercises to hone in on the skillsets of projection, movement, text work and character building. Through monologue workshops and scene study, beginning actor’s work will culminate in a showing of a monologue and scene in a final performance for an audience on the main stage at Arts Hub.
Monologues and scenes will be pulled from the following plays, with an option to choose one’s own material if preferred:
Buried Child- Sam Shepard
A Doll’s House- Henrik Ibsen
Long Day’s Journey into Night- Eugene O’neill
The Glass Menagerie- Tennessee Williams
A Streetcar Named Desire- Tennessee Williams
Death of A Salesman- Arthur Miller
All My Sons- Arthur Miller
The Goat or Who is Sylvia- Edward Albee
Our Town- Thornton Wilder
Fences- August Wilson
Slaughter City- Naomi Wallace
Closer- Patrick Narber
Doubt- John Patrick Shanley
Proof- David Auburn
August Osage County- Tracy Letts
Short readings for the class will be provided by the instructor, so there is no need to buy a book unless that is your preference. These readings will primarily come from:
A Practical Handbook for the Actor
Freeing the Natural Voice- Kristin Linklater
How to Stop Acting- Harold Guskin
Actions- The Actors Thesaurus- Marina Caldarone
The instructor for this introductory adult acting class is Gina Braswell, MA in Theatre and Performance. If you have any questions or would like more information about the content of the class feel free to email her at email@example.com
