Practicing Stage Make-up Techniques in Acting Class

Students in acting classes use lab days to practice stage make-up techniques in Mrs. Silverman's classroom. In this unique space, students experience what it is like to be back-stage in a dressing room. When the actors rehearse and perform, they use the Grier Auditorium stage. Grier offers three acting courses that include Introduction to Acting I, Acting II, and Acting for the Camera.

Through written and performance activities like improvisation and theatre games, students in Introduction to Acting I experience voice training, diction training, mind and body training for stage acting. Students will learn beginning make- up techniques and perform monologues and scenes. By the end of this semester, students will ha ve a head shot and resume so they can audition anywhere!

Acting and public speaking can help build confidence, improve verbal communication, sharpen memorization skills, foster cooperation, and so much more. Grier provides many opportunities for students at all levels to get involved with acting and drama, both through classes and through cast or crew roles in stage productions.
