Characterizations

Click here to register Characterizations  | level 1 class, grades 7-12  What do Wilbur, Mrs. Potts, Daffy Duck, and John Wayne all have in common?  They are all examples of characters you can learn to portray in this level one theater class – Characterization.  This class will focus on four categories of characters:  animals, inanimate objects, imaginary creatures, and different people.  We will use observations, internet research, theater activities, and improvisations to study and portray these characters, along with possible use of poetry, children’s stories, monologues, and scenes.  The goal of this class is to do an in-depth exploration on how to transform our vocal, physical, and facial characteristics to portray characters who are much different than the typical teenager.  This class will have a fun, positive, and encouraging atmosphere as students are challenged to present these characters.  Complete and active participation is required.   Class DetailsClass LocationAbout the TutorImportant DatesHow to Register Class: Characterizations Grades: 7-12 Tutor: Julie Nelson Spring Semester: Jan 31-May 9 (no class on March 28th) Time: Wednesdays from 12:30-2:00pm Prerequisite: None Homework: Average 2 hours per week Materials: Students should bring: a folder, writing utensils, and a highlighter.
