Special Topics in Theatre

Special Topics: The Actor’s Workshop
This course is designed to help actors strip away the mystery behind character building and push beyond personal boundaries to make large, creative, and believable choices. At the beginning of the semester, the instructor will cast each student – against type – in Lanford Wilson’s landmark street-life drama Balm in Gilead. A series of workshops will help each actor use imagination to stretch the horizon of her/his instrument (body and voice) to discover the fun of playing a “big” character. For the final exam, students will apply the tools learned throughout the semester to create another bold character, this time from a different play. (THEA 0102)
