*Our actors scripts will be posted in the classroom sometime after the first class. *Each learner is required to download their script onto their desktop as soon as it is received. *Memorizing lines are not required for this course. *Learners will use their scripts that have been downloaded on to their desktop as a guide during performance. Actors are asked to rehearse their lines each week by reading their assigned lines out loud with a friend or family member. The focus of the class is on character interpretation.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
***All learners entering the course must have strong reading skills. ***Unfortunately we are unable to accept weekly payments for this course. Payment in full must be made at time of enrollment. Thank you in advance for your understanding regarding this matter. ***Performing virtually does have its limitations. As per Outschool’s policies, household members are welcome to watch their child perform live from afar and a comfortable distance from the actors device. Parents are unable to join the zoom meeting and view the show. Household members are able to view the video, which will be posted in the classroom the next day. For your child’s safety Outschool policies does not permit the video of the performance to be emailed or edited. ***The selected play chosen for this class will not exceed twenty-five to thirty minutes in length. ***Auditioning for specific roles is not part of CTP's methodology. All parts will be assigned by the teacher and posted in the classroom after the first week of the course. Focus is spent on the techniques that are applied to the role and not the amount of lines or size of the part. ***A medium to large open space is required. Comfortable clothing such as, athletic or dance attire works perfectly well. As for shoes, if your child is participating on a hard surface floor such as hardwood or tile, a pair of running shoes are recommended for proper support. Should your child be in carpeted room, non stick socks work. Cordless ear buds required or simply using the microphone form your child's computer work well. No prior stretching or warming up is required and water bottles are a must!
