Description

Level Four dives deep into an advanced form (e.g. Evente, MonoScene, Deconstruction, Sleepover, Harold+, The Movie) and works on that form with the singular focus need to create a great show. The Mono-scene is an opportunity to develop a world in one single location. Through the exploration of fully realized characters, students will develop listening skills and patience. The eight class sessions are followed by a four week run of shows, giving students an enhanced opportunity to learn by doing, over time, in front of a real audience. Prerequisite: Magnet Level Three.
