Acting the Scene
(Good Vs. Evil)
Our "Acting the Scene" class will be a great way for your Explorer to challenge their brilliant minds!
Harness your acting and writing skills all in one course! Throughout these lessons taught by Ms. Brigid, each student will develop a scene, polish their writing, and work with other peers to perform each other's scenes. Students will have a positive and welcoming space to write their ideas out, no matter what previous experience they have with playwriting. Following the theme of "Good Vs. Evil", students will be given the chance to practice casting and leadership, and when performing in each other’s scenes, they can gain the experience of playing the characters that their peers have crafted from scratch!
We will meet from 5:00 pm-6:15 pm on Wednesdays.
This is a 6-week class that starts on February 3rd and finishes on March 10th.
We will be recording our final performance during class time on the 10th.
All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder Mystery.
Lookout, our band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are onstage again in All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder Mystery. Follow along—if you dare—as our misguided performers attempt to nail down those devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager, who really love dealing with the egomaniacs and lunatics in the cast, wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?! Chaos rules the day as time is running out for cast and crew to sort out this mess. Safe to say, you will never look at a whodunit the same way again as All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder Mystery brings up the curtain on bad accents, murder, and laughs.
Rehearsals will be scheduled based on participants' schedules. We will finalize consistent rehearsals after auditions. Be prepared to commit around one hour a week.
This show will either be performed Live on Zoom or as a recorded video shared Live.
Registration and Auditions Due on February 27th
Rehearsals start the week of March 7th.
Performances are May 14th, 15th, and 16th
With a degree in Theatre for Youth from Shenandoah University, Emilie Fletcher has been a theatre educator since 2008, specializing in teaching professional and advanced acting techniques to students ages 4-18. During our private lessons, she tailors each lesson to your student's individual goals and needs. We work from the basics and move up to advanced skills and techniques, as well as preparing for the profession with resumes and audition techniques. During our first lesson, Emilie will do some "get to know you" exercises and some fun theatre games to assess where each student's knowledge and confidence levels are. We will then create a monthly plan that will help us achieve our goals. You can learn more about our teaching philosophies and teaching history here.
One on one lessons can be used to learn acting techniques and receive individualized attention and notes. Prep for an upcoming audition or build your repertoire for your future. Other lesson topics include: directing, acting through song, monologue work, confidence building, and more.
