Explore what it takes to make a compelling character! Using familiar stories to spark ideas and understand what drives characters forward in a story, students will use their actor’s tools of body, voice, mind, and imagination to transform into fun, theatrical characters. Students will learn how to make strong physical and vocal choices, create simple character biographies, and develop acting skills to portray characters who interact with other characters. Classwork culminates in an informal, digital sharing that showcases the skills students have developed throughout the session.
