Arts Enter will be holding auditions for this spring’s Academy of Theater Arts on January 16th at 10:00 at The Palace Theater in Cape Charles. This is the first season for the Theater Arts Academy, which will be an intensive all hands on deck production experience which will include auditioning skills, the actor’s method, improvisational training, vocal training and theater games.
The class will begin with a basic play structure, which is based on the South American story myth of Anansi the Spider. After auditions, and students are assigned their characters, the class will engage in a series of theater games and improvisations which will flush out the character, and create the dialog for the play. Each week, the class will build on the previous week, until a full fledged play has been created.
This process will involve a lot of hard work as well as lots of fun. Along the way, we will be focusing on many technical aspects, such as voice, diction, the actor’s method, as well as how to nail an audition. Students will also play a big part in designing the sets, lighting, and some aspects of the sound design.
As always, this production will be fused with Ms. Amy’s dance classes to create the Spring Dancaeble Drama.
The cost of the program is $75, however, for students already enrolled in the dance school, the cost is $35.
The time of rehearsals is tentatively set for 5:15 to 6:45 each Friday.
