Students will develop their performance skills and experience with a variety of comedic materials from a range of theatrical periods and playwrights. Emphasis will be placed on the creative exploration of comedy through language, physicality and relationship. Cultural considerations about comedy will be investigated. Students will research and perform texts from a wide spectrum of cultural, economic and social perspectives. This is an advanced acting class that synthesizes learning from previous classes in text analysis, theater history, scene study and vocal and physical training.
