Using the abundance of knowledge and skills you’ve garnered in your ASC Online Level 1 & 2 courses, our ASC Online Level 3 course prepares you to delve into the world of the play! This course will teach you how to actively read, notate, and study the entirety of the play in order to cultivate a dynamic  “character arc”. In this course, emphasis will be placed on:

  • Memorization skills that further actor-to-text connection

  • Using costumes to help you get more in your body and explore specific character movements.

  • Using props to further ground you in space and encourage personalization.

  • Using the Guideposts to effectively incorporate what you learned from actively reading the entire play into your scene work.

Materials will be sourced from contemporary American playwrights such as John Patrick Shanley, David Mamet, Rebecca Gilman, and Tony Kushner.

Required: Prior experience and training, determined by headshot, resume, and self-tape submission for the instructor.

Students must have internet access, as well as a computer/cell phone/tablet with a working camera and microphone.

Tuition: $395
