Was it the butler, the business partner, the fiancé or the friend? Imagine a world where the theatrical stage has moved online, where a mystery is afoot, and we need to find out "who dunnit?" Our student actors will connect in an interactive, online platform to put on a production about solving a murder in this play within a play!
The class will cast, practice, and perform the chosen play in a virtual setting for our online audience, yet students will communicate as if they're all in the same place together. The selected script was specifically written for virtual theater. New and returning acting students will have fun and be challenged to think on their feet with costumes, props, and backdrops when the show is literally happening in your own home.
This class is best suited for students who are active listeners, are flexible and easily adapt, have a sense of humor, and can work in a collaborative group. Students need to be able to stay in sync with the flow of the class. This is not an "anything goes" or free-for-all class. The students will perform for family and friends at the end of the quarter online.
Topics in this Series: A Mystery Murdered (Quarter 2); Objection! Disorder in the Courtroom (Quarter 3), and A Selection of Skits: A series of 10-minute virtual plays (Quarter 4)
