Actors may be the only ones in our society who are encouraged and applauded for making a scene. But how do they make it so good? Through a combination of drama exercises, scene studies, and performances, guided by feedback from teachers and peers, students develop the necessary skills to make a scene—in the best possible way, of course! The class culminates in a performance of the students’ work. Classes take place in open-air studios with at least one side exposed to Usdan’s beautiful wooded campus.

Students will study scenes taken, in part, from the play chosen for the 4-week B Acting Group Major. For this reason, this 4-week A Major is strongly recommended to 8-week students who plan to take the Acting Group in 4-week B. All levels of theatrical experience are welcome.
