Elective

The Pack’s core Improv and Sketch Programs represent what we consider to be the foundations for good performers and writers. We also offer elective workshops throughout the year because a good performer never stops learning. Our electives help students expand their performance abilities and refine their understanding of different approaches to the work. Our commitment to adjustment, adaptation and evolution is what separates The Pack Theater from other comedy schools.

Description

An acting class for all experience levels–dedicated and tailored to the most common, established, and specific dynamics involved in the style of stage-performance required to bring any COMEDIC SKETCH “to life.” Various techniques and methods, often found in the basics of dramatic acting, will be demonstrated as the same building blocks for best SERVING the demands of a sketch–with whatever its particular type, tone, and premise ultimately guiding the “choices” made by its cast. From stage-picture and blocking to “entrances and exits” to vocal delivery, “classic” timing, and intensity of characterization–there will be an emphasis on each student embracing their natural comic strengths while also developing the tools to SUBVERT the expectation of how that particular sketch actor is PERCEIVED on stage. Whether you’re the lead… or a supporting player… this class will push performers to identify their purpose and execute it in the most effective manner to make the sketch the funniest it can be.
