Dramatic Workshop: Script Analysis
Weekend Workshop:

This workshop is a specialized script analysis class in conjunction with building a character from the text. 

We will analyze the structure and related elements of the text, and then explore the various choices that

the actor might select and which could be made when playing the scene in performance.


Every actor should become a detective and look for clues, that lie in the script, buried in the text by the author.  By the end of this workshop  you will be able to solve the problem by being simply answering

the following questions:



​No matter what acting technique you are using, these questions should become the basis of your work on your script.   "Words can  stimulate our five senses": Stanislavsky

Participants will study the script from many different perspectives such as historical, the genre of the work, and the linear curves of the drama.  The course begins with a very brief history of theatrical styles as well as to the method used to break down the script.The workshop will include:
