Beginning Acting Through Scenes & Monologues for Adults with Colin Sullivan
July 12 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
This is a beginning acting class designed for Ouray County community members that have a wide range of acting experience and are interested in honing their work for the stage. Core components of the class include, monologue-writing, listening-and-reacting, physical clowning, physical gesture work, Viewpoints and basic vocal training. We will use these tangible/concrete ideas along with contemporary scenes from theater as well as our own handwritten monologues to explore stage performance in accessible and exciting ways! The class will require some outside script analysis and writing.
