There are as many ways to learn acting as there have been teachers of acting. In this course, we will explore the techniques of some of the greatest teachers of all time, including Uta Hagen, Sanford Meisner, Lee Strasberg, Michael Chekov, Stella Adler, and of course, Constantin Stanislavski. Stanislavski's eight principles will be employed as students work on scenes and monologues to be presented in class. Improvisation, science study, and test analysis techniques will be developed, and students will leave the course with a thorough understanding of how actors approach their craft. In addition to performing, students will give a final presentation in class on the work and techniques of a great acting teacher or director.
