WARM UP YOUR ACTING AT THE BARN THIS WINTER!!!
Exciting announcement: The New London Barn Playhouse will be offering winter classes again in January/February 2014! Register now!
This winter, we are thrilled to continue our school-year programming with more acting classes! Barn alumni and professional teaching artists will teach courses aimed at helping young actors to strengthen their skill sets and find their voices. Each class will culminate in a final presentation of scenes.
Classes will be held at the New London Outing Club Indoor Center (at the former middle school and location of our summer camps) for six weeks.
Wednesdays: January 8, 15, 22, 29, and February 5 & 12
Fridays: January 10, 17, 24, 31 and February 7 & 14
3:30-5:00pm Wednesdays ONLY
In this introductory acting course, students will learn basic acting techniques. Beginning with projecting your voice and showing emotions with your gestures, each fundamental of performing on stage will be taught and encouraged through a series of exercises. Teamwork and creativity will flourish as each child works toward creating a scene.
PLAYING THE SCENE
5:00-6:30 Wednesdays ONLY
In this intermediate course, students will learn how to create a rich and dynamic character and then have those characters work towards their goals within their situations. Applying skills already learned in prior classes, the young actors will learn to make choices onstage to help develop the scenes. Using the same techniques as professional actors, students will get a chance to try their hand at scenes from classic plays.
5:00-6:30pm Fridays ONLY
In this advanced course, actors will develop techniques to play scenes believably, honestly, and dynamically. Working with texts, students will analyze the material and create strong three dimensional characters. Acting techniques will be strengthened with specificity and connection, and applied to the scenes through objectives and actions.
Class sizes will be limited, so please register early to ensure a spot in the class!
