If you know me, you know I'm a tad biased about my students. But let's get real - theatre prepares you for countless obstacles in life. I could wax poetic for days about my wonderful theatre students, but here's my top 16 for why thespians become the most productive and well-rounded adults.
We've all heard of the typical acting tactics- Meisner, Hagen, Stanislavski. These are classics for a reason. But I've found that working with high school students requires a little more novelty. While the study of these legends is incredibly important to a well-rounded acting education, a little fun never hurt anyone. So we've compiled our favorite, weirdest and maybe most unexpected acting techniques that have worked wonders for our actors over the years. We hope you have fun with them!
