Students will learn to use text analysis and their own imagination to develop a character. Each student will learn a monologue, which they will perform in class as an audition.
Students will apply character motivations to explore ways to approach a scene, focusing on Stanislavski’s seven questions as a basis for creating well rounded characters.
Aspiring actors will learn to develop techniques to help discover the living truth of the characters by
navigating the richness of the text and exploring the inner lives and the forces that drive them.
The Newport Theatre Youth Workshop emphasizes a professional approach to the craft of acting, a process that requires dedication and discipline. Our goal is to give young actors the tools to successfully navigate the audition process and when they land the part, to have fun creating a character by focusing on imagination, text analysis and the joy of creative failure.
Each class adds a new dimension to one’s skill in the craft; when I took them sequentially, they really enhanced the ways in which I approached new pieces. Plus, Floyd, Lauren, and Rhonda are a pleasure to work with.– Arietta
My experience with Rhonda was beyond anything I could have imagined. I am so thankful to have been part of such a great learning experience.– Lilli
Fees are $300.00 per student for each eight week course. Classes meet via Zoom or at the Newport Theatre Arts Center.
