This course is aimed at students (12 years old and above) who wish to explore the exciting world of Musical Theatre. The students will have classes in acting, singing and movement--which include chorus work, solo work, acting approach, scene studies and improvisation--combining all three strands of performance arts. Particular emphasis is placed on combining a solid acting approach with singing, using the Stanislavski-Uta Hagen devised technique. This includes sense memory, physical and psychological actions, animal work, relationship exercises, character work, obstacles and improvisations.
No previous experience is necessary, but all students are expected to participate fully in the course, and can decide to concentrate on either a Musical Theatre or Acting (for non-singers) strand for the Final Showcase which will be prepared for and rehearsed towards a full Public Performance.
The Final Showcase will be open to the paying public, and will consist of musical theatre pieces, scene studies, as well as group and solo musical theatre work. Students will be offered the opportunity to explore a wide range of characters and roles.
Workshop classes run from April 4-June 1, 2008. Classes will be held every Tuesday and Fridays, 6:30 - 8:30pm at the New Voice Company Actors Studio: 8020 Tanguile St. San Antonio Village, Makati City.
The final showcase will be held at the RCBC Theater, Ayala Avenue, Makati, on June 1.
New Voice Company Workshop teachers are all trained theatre professionals who are practicing professional theatre directors/ actors/ choreographers and teachers. Main Workshop Teacher and Director is NVC Associate Artistic Director RITO ASILO. Monique Wilson, NVC Artistic Director, will be supervising the Final Showcase.
