A Course of Study in Acting Fundamentals for Junior College.
Greening, Ruth Patricia Browne
A complete and comprehensive course of study in acting fundamentals for the junior college is presented. Its overall goals are to develop individual sensitivity and creativity, without neglecting essential skills and traditional theatrical and academic values. Justification of major course objectives in the junior college curriculum, presentation of exercises and instructional materials, a final evaluation and conclusion, and an appendix of additional exercises comprise the paper's main sections. Precise objectives are specified with appropriate exercises for achieving them. The exercises are complied from authoritative books on, and personal experiences with, acting, dancing, voice, therapy, and physical culture. Others are the author's own invention; still other are adaptations, variations, or developments of exercises in common use at the time of writing. These are used in conjunction with the six instructional units: (1) Body Movement, (2) Sense, Memory and Pantomime, (3) Voice, (4) Stage Mechanics, (5) Planning a Scene, and (6) Developing a Scene.
