SCENE / MONOLOGUE WORK
1. The entire play that the assigned scene or monologue is from must be read and analyzed for character features.
2. A well written Character Biography must be completed based on the above.
3. The text of the actual scene or monologue must be dissected for beats and objectives.
4. The scene or monologue must be thoroughly memorized by the assigned date.
5. The scene or monologue must be rehearsed efficiently using time given as well as rehearsals outside of class time. Wasted rehearsal time will reflect negatively.
6. Beats and objectives should be demonstrated in the staging and performance of the scene or monologue.
7. Use a variety of tactics to achieve their objective. These tactics should be reflected in beat changes.
8. Character analysis and concentration should be demonstrated in the performance.
9. Students will record criticism from the instructor and the class and will demonstrate improvement based on that criticism in future showings. (from scenes)
