Imagine that the last chocolate chip cookie pleads with you not to ear it! The math book begs to be studied. The toys that ask to remain on the floor. Discover the mixed-up world of Taylor, a teen who acquires the ability to hear what the objects and animals around her are saying. Are Taylor's ears burning when hears what the cat really thinks of the family? Or, does she keep an ear to the ground to find out what everyone and everything around her is planning?
The class will cast, practice, and perform the cyber play in an interactive, virtual setting for an 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 their 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.
