|February 11, 2017||Teen: Naturalism: Heightened Realism and Extreme Honesty
What is the difference between realism and naturalism? How do their plays and acting styles contrast? Join us as we explore how naturalism takes realism to the next level in its flawed and often-frightening characters and plots.
|March 18, 2017||Teen: Laughter and Chaos: Theatre of the Absurd
What are the rules of theatre, and who decides them? How do they relate to the rules of the world that we are trying to portray on the stage? How can we bend the rules? How can we disregard them entirely? At our March meeting, teens will explore the “nonrules” of absurdism, the history of the style, and how to understand a style that is all about lack of understanding.
|April 15, 2017||Teen: An Art for All Senses: Dance and Music in the Theatre
Throughout history, theatre has managed to encompass all different art forms--visual, aural, poetic--into one, sensational medium. Join us as we explore the history of dance and music in theatre, how the three performance arts influence and interwine with one another, and how we can use these elements to enhance both spectacle and honesty in our storytelling.
|May 13, 2017||The Scottish Play: An Exploration into Teen: The Art of Auditioning: Balancing Storytelling and Competition
Auditioning is one of the most crucial skills an actor must possess, yet it is sometimes considered an art completely different from that of acting. Fundamentally, it is about making a good impression as quickly as possible. But what else is there to it? How do we create competitive audition material while also enjoying the process of storytelling? We will discuss and practice auditioning through ensemble exercises, scenes, and feedback, and we will explore how to make the process of auditioning as rewarding as the potential result.
