With the goal of preparing students for entry into professional or university programs, ArtQuest Theatre Arts is designed for students who wish to become actors and theatre-makers. Entry requires a successful audition and interview.
This program asks students to engage in rigorous daily physical and vocal exercises. Students gain confidence, learn technique, expand vocal and physical range, and make bold choices. Self-motivation, and discipline are demanded of Theatre Arts students, who are asked to learn lines quickly, read and analyze scripts, share and apply real-life experiences, and risk their self-image. Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Theatre Arts students must participate as members of a greater ensemble, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the dramatic arts. This ensemble works as a theatre company, producing challenging works of art, while learning, growing, and testing their limitations.
ARTQUEST THEATRE (Level 1)
First and Second year Students will be begin to identify, apply, synthesize, and analyze in detail all major aspects needed for the creation of believable characters in a theatrical performance, including style and genre.
ARTQUEST THEATRE (Level 2)
Second and Third students train in a conservatory, process–oriented environment. Deepening emotional availability, character relationships, sense memory and physical connectedness. Students will be introduced to the Suzuki Method of Actor Training.
ARTQUEST THEATRE (Advanced)
Third and Fourth year students work exclusively on producing theatrical works. We move very quickly through series productions including annual participation at the Lenaea Theatre Festival. This class is designed for students who have acquired a high level (university level) of technique, commitment and artistic responsibility and are looking to practice those skills. Before entering the class students should be adept at text analysis, text application, vocal projection, and overall acting technique.
ARTQUEST ADVANCED HONORS THEATRE
Fourth Year students are allowed to request entry into this course, which is taught concurrently with the Advanced Theatre Class. See instructor for more information.
This class has currently been cut from the program and we are fighting to get it back!
