Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: develop text analysis skills; create the world of play; engage with text to uncover significant important information provided by the playwright; organize a personal research process that supports a personal rehearsal process; demonstrate character development abilities; and utilize research to support storytelling.


This course enables the actor to dissect and deconstruct a play. The primary elements of text analysis and research are implemented to identify and develop the skills necessary to enhance comprehension of a role, and the overall journey of the play. The focus is on the study of breaking scenes into beats, finding actions, and applying research physically to the work. Two key texts from the Modern American Realism canon are examined.
