What you'll learn in this acting technique class:

In this class, students will delve deeper into the Barrow Group approach and tools, while working on ensemble building games, script analysis/story structure, monologues, and scene study.

Prerequisite: Beginners Acting Level 1

All exercises are designed to:

  • Encourage spontaneity
  • Foster real human behavior
  • Help the actor become more sensitive, imaginative, responsive, and alive onstage
  • Relax the actor
  • Change the work effortlessly and invisibly (so the audience won’t detect any effort on the actor’s part and therefore will feel like they are watching a real person rather than an actor “working”)
  • Bring more freedom to the work

Schedule:


Week 1:

  • Introduction
  • Review syllabus
  • Theatre / Improv games

Week 2:

  • Script Analysis/Story Structure

Week 3:

  • Memorization Exercises
  • Set Building

Weeks 4, 5, 6, and 7:

  • Scenes

Weeks 8, 9, and 10:

  • Monologues and wrap up

Question from anonymous
Hi! I took the Beginners Acting I class at TBG and I really loved it. Even though I am not an actor, I would like to continue and take the Beginners Acting II, but I was just wondering whether this class is more for professional actors or whether it is also a good fit for amateur actors. Thanks!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Beginner II is considered the next step after Beginner I, and would be a good fit for actors who don't have a lot of experience yet.
