St. Olaf’s Theater 230: Intermediate Acting is a studio course for the student with previous acting experience. Through scene and monologue work students explore text and character analysis as well as the requirements of major theatrical period styles. Students perform regularly throughout the semester. The course requires trips to professional theaters in the Twin Cities. Prerequisites: Theater 110 or 180, and 130 or 131. Offered annually in the spring semester. In this course, students will perform material from a variety of theatrical styles as a means of expanding the actors’ playable range intellectually, vocally, physically and emotionally. Material often explored includes Ellen McLaughlin’s adaptations of Greek plays, Shakespeare’s soliloquies, scenes and sonnets, the classical Realism of Ibsen and Chekhov, and Absurdist material by Eugene Ionesco and Samuel Beckett. Students also perform a piece based on original text created by a class peer. This studio is for the serious actor who has the passion, time and diligence to focus on acting technique. Students should be ready to memorize an ample amount of material, and to make time for significant outside-of-class rehearsals with peers.
" Janelle Snow , On-Camera 3 instructor, is the bomb-diggity! I learned soooo many things; but, the ones that stand out the most for me are: 1- When you are called/contacted for an audition, know that you are walking into the room already loved. 2- So, show up ready to enjoy the play-date. 3- It really doesn't matter if you book the job at that very moment, or perhaps later; it matters that you have FUN doing what you love. 4- If the agent and/or reader acts disinterested in your performance then compel them to hear you....bring life and energy into that room. 5- The audition is like a party; you show up bearing gifts (talent) and ready to play. Don't be discouraged if they didn't need/appreciate that particular gift at that particular time. There will be other parties and you will eventually be the favored gift- just keep showing up! WARNING: Janelle's enthusiasm is CONTAGIOUS!!!"
