Study With One of the Top Acting Teachers of Our Generation
How do you use a script to build a living, breathing world on-stage? Actors, directors, playwrights alike: Your script is your Bible. Study it, and it will light your path. This Script Analysis class uses Checkov plays to explore theme, spine, event metaphor, actions, and behavior.
What Is Script Analysis and Why Is it Important?
Script Analysis is detective work. Under each line there are layers of meaning relating to each character and the overall story arc. For actors and directors, the more you understand of a script, the better your acting choices become. And that, make a captivating performance. For playwrights, the more urgent your scenes. Terry Schreiber brings 51 years of directing and teaching to this special Script Analysis class. Influenced by the work of Harold Clurman, Terry guides actors, directors and playwrights through the process of preparing a script or full production book. Terry Schreiber has worded with hundreds of actors including Edward Norton, Peter Sarsgaard, Jon Orsini & Debra Jo Rupp.
