Introduction to Acting Techniques (C/S 296)

If all the world's a stage, this course is your road map. Renowned stage actress Coty Warn instructs this course which will enhance students' communication skills through the study of physical, vocal, analytical and intuitive techniques used in stage work. Students will learn scene study, character objectives, and motivations. The lessons learned in this class would not only be invaluable to the budding actor but also to the seasoned community theatre veteran looking for new insights. The course is also an instrumental tool in applying lessons learned on the stage to everyday life and personal character development. Discussion topics will include the theory and technique of creating a role with activities in both solo work and scene study. All classes will be held in the Mountain City School for Performing Arts in Downtown Frostburg, a school Warn founded in 2013.
