Acting for Writers 2

Instructor: John S. Green

Having explored the basics of acting in part I, part II will ask students to become the "writer in the room” and create scenes to be acted by their fellow students. It is invaluable to understand how to speak to the director and actors using the basic language of acting they understand.

In this course you will learn to:

  1. Create dramatic scenes for specific actors.
  2. Communicate effectively with actors and directors in terms they understand.
  3. Explore what does and doesn’t work once a scene is on its feet.
  4. Live inside of a character from the page to the stage.

The course is designed for students who have completed Acting For Writers I and experienced actors who want to review the basics as they apply them to writing.

Sessions/Weekday 6 Wednesdays
Start/End Date Nov 06 - Dec 18  (6 sessions) 
Time Slot 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Notes There will not be class on Nov 27.
