William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing - Festival of Theater 2016

Professional Theatre Workshop

The Professional Theatre Workshop focuses on the creation of
The Actor’s Toolbox through exploration of various approaches to realizing a character using sensory, emotional, and physical work.

First year actors focus on interpreting the voices and styles of the Great American Playwrights and are introduced to classical texts.

In the Second year, a greater understanding of heightened text and situation are developed through additional scene study, musical, and physical classes.

The actor who completes this program will leave with the range and ability to succeed in theatre, film, and television.

The Circle in the Square Theatre School is a clock-hour based program of study. As defined by the U.S. Department of Education for Title IV purposes, one clock hour contains at least 50 minutes of instruction in a 60 minute period of time. Instruction may include class, lecture, recitation, faculty supervised labs, shop training, internships and correspondence preparation. A clock hour, therefore, is based on an actual hour of attendance. This is the standard employed by the Circle in the Square Theatre School in assigning clock hours to a course.
