This introductory acting course meets for twelve weeks between January 6 and March 30. The class will be held in the Rotunda Theatre, Theological hall. This year the focus of the course is ensemble and text. Each student will work on a monologue and a two-hander. All the text will be from Shakespeare’s As You Like It (you must purchase the version edited by Juliet Dusinberre, Arden Shakespeare, Third Series). We will explore a number of methods for working with this material.
There will be a lot of physical work, so please wear loose fitting clothing and bring a snack for yourself, fruit, juice, etc. If you have a yoga mat you may bring it.
Instructor: Dr. Julie Salverson, Queen’s University of Drama, Kingston, Ontario jsalverson.wordpress.com
Guests: Chick Reid, Lib Spry
The text (As You Like It) and courseware are available at the Campus Bookstore. Please bring this version of the play to class.
