Acting course culminating in a public performance
13238 TH-4810.01 Acting III Tuesday/Thursday 12:00 – 1:15
This is the first time that this concept has been taught at Plymouth State University. Because it is an unusual concept, we want to be sure everyone who might be interested is aware. We will consider signing students in who may not have all of the prerequisites – please do inquire if you are interested!
Acting 3 is the highest-level acting class offered at PSU, readying you for moving out into the professional world. Although we will do some skills work, the focus is that each student will write/create, stage and perform a short solo show, going for 20 minutes.
The work on this will begin from Day 1, be deeply developed over the semester, and end with 1-2 public performances—we have tentatively secured approval to show them at the Museum for the White Mountains. Everything you need fits into a small suitcase.
No special lighting, no sound effects unless you make them yourself—there will be no tech support. Just you, your body and words, creating a world with your audience. This piece can be a calling card, combined with others to tour or put up a show once you leave PSU, develop into a solo show that can stand on its own, or be submitted into festivals.
As part of the course you will discover a variety of amazing solo work across a range of styles, and you will be encouraged to step out of the already-known into your own deep well of creativity!
