Acting I introduces students to the art of acting. By the end of this semester, students will have acquired fundamental acting skills and insight into performance analysis. Students will develop a detailed understanding of the actor’s craft; engage the body/voice as the actor’s performing instrument; explore internal (memory, impulses, and so forth) and external (the other actors, the environment, objects, and so forth) stimuli as creative sources; rediscover of play and imagination; learn how to focus effort and attention while performing; and develop work ethics and discipline. Students in this course will engage in physical activity and be required to spend 3-5 hours in rehearsals outside of scheduled class time. Every semester. (4 Credits)
