The MasterWorks Festival - Theater program
The Theatre Program encourages performing excellence and the integration of faith and classical theatre. Students spend daily classes and rehearsal time in development of the voice and body, scene study, rehearsal techniques and gaining a Christian perspective on the art of theatre. Class topics include warm-ups, physical and vocal training, scene study, script analysis, individual monologue coaching, audition workshops, character creation, movement, and classical text work. Various master classes have included stage combat, developing character, musical theatre, and Shakespearean acting techniques.
Faith is fostered in theatre studies, worship, devotions, prayer time before rehearsals, and festival-wide spiritual activities.
Daily rehearsals are geared toward multiple performances of a fully staged production. Set building and costuming are also part of the theatre training. Other performance opportunities include Sunday morning worship services, an honors recital, theatre improvisation and mastercl$%%@es with guest artists.
