About the Event
“Be Big!” “Comedic Skills a Must” Sound familiar? In this class we will study the art of comedy and identify improv elements to help the actor “Be Big” and show off their “comedic skills” when auditioning for comedic roles. We will study scripts and use improv to work on heightening, beat structure, game of the scene, character game, object work, patterns, rule of three’s, etc. Understanding, comedically, how the scene works and your character’s role in the scene, you can more effectively perform your role and support the other characters in the scene.
