Acting 3: Performance (Scene study) with Rebecca Benson

This course is for students who are interested in a more in-depth exploration of character and text. Using scenes from some of the world's best contemporary plays, you will learn how an actor prepares for rehearsal, how to recognize and understand the action of a scene, and how to develop a character for a more layered performance. Expect to be up on your feet working on scenes right away and receiving useful feedback every class. 

This course will be offered at a later date.
