About this course:

Reading play scripts can be challenging, because at first, you might feel like you're reading a set of instructions. Most plays contain dialogue along with cold, calculating stage directions. Yet, a play can be a moving literary experience. In this course, we read mystery scripts aloud—some of the best whodunits ever written, starting with Agatha Christie’s Mousetrap. We then see how mysteries have evolved over the years by reading aloud and discussing Joe DiPietro’s Art of Murder. At the beginning of each class, we do vocal and physical warm-ups, as well as some improvisational games to free up our spirits and voices and hearts. And in the process of reading, we learn how to be more expressive and how an actor makes decisions concerning the creation of a character. Whether you had the lead in your high school musical or never acted before, this course will kindle or rekindle in you the joy and excitement of reading a script aloud.
