An actor must never obviously give the impression that he is giving a characterization or projecting emotions, or speaking so as to arrest the attention of the audience. He must work convincingly, naturally all the while working with technical certainty vocally and physically. No other attribute is more serviceable than Vocal clarity, ease, strength and precision. We will be working on voice and speech; relaxation and self-confidence. And to develop an appreciation for drama and art form, great emphasis will be placed upon the performer/creator, we will become familiar with dramatic terminology and script format, to develop belief in identification with, and commitment to a role, to become familiar with disciplines that enhance dramatic process.
