Short Play/Rehearsal/Production Workshop

with Alex Murphy.


“There comes a time when actors have to stand and deliver, they must put themselves to the test; to grow, finally, you must perform for an audience.”

Advanced technique work will continue during this cycle; actors will engage in a process whereby they are expected to vigorously and specifically pursue and then “justify” acting choices with exercises and presentation text. Via assigned text, a practical framework for the actors approach to script analysis will be followed. An active examination of the “given circumstances “ of the text is always a primary objective. Short published plays will be assigned, re-hearsed, and then fina lly, performed for an audience for two nights.

Each week, after technique exercises, actors will move on to scheduled individual rehearsals during the late afternoons for they assigned short plays.

Actors are expected to commit to some rehearsal with their assigned partners in their private time.

Final Performances of the Short Plays for an invited audience will be held in the final week of the semester.

Actors must have completed the “Scene Study to Performance with Act technique” (September to late October 2020), or, as this is a class with emphasis on play production, you must have some previous actor training to join this class.
