Scene Study

Scene Study reminds us that reacting is just as important as acting-- and is meant to help students focus on the other actor and learn to implement the vocabulary of acting (objectives, tactics, character, scene, setting) into their ability to interpret a text and make it into a believable moment on stage!  This is incredibly rewarding and fun as the techniques are mastered and played out on stage.  Scene Study is a wonderful component to any young actors development and allows an actor to experiment with tools and exercises to harness an honest and dynamic performance!  


Workshops: November 2017

Ages 10-17

Learn about what it really takes to make a scene study successful -- not just for a local play, but also in the industry… right here at OYES! You will learn skills for memorization, ensemble work with your fellow cast-mates, and ways to commit to being in the moment with your character. This course will also provide proper techniques for having that successful audition for years to come! For introductory and intermediate levels. Class culminates in a showcase.
