PAMT 311 Acting V for Musical Theatre

Course Description:The course is an exploration of the fundamental tools of Verse and Heightened Language acting—the text—from the actor’s point of view. What clues for the actor are in the words themselves? How are we meant to use devices such as the verse rhythm, the verse rhythm, the sounds of the language, and the word choices to bring the character to life, to discover the most dynamic performance of the scene, to excite thought and feeling in an audience? This is extended to the musical scene and the various techniques taught are applied to the musical performance.
