Summary: ACTING: ONSTAGE AND OFF demonstrates how offstage performance can be effectively adapted for the theatre, as well as how onstage training can be applied toward leading a full life outside the theatre. Barton's humorous and conversational writing style helps students learn all phases of actor training, including scene study, auditioning, observation, and mind, voice and body relaxation techniques. The use of examples from daily life instead of dramatic literature faci
litates student understanding and leads to meaningful class discussion based on everyday experiences.

  • A conversational, engaging writing style uses humor to involve students in the text and course.
  • An abundance of exercises and web-based teaching materials, including instructor resource manual and activity worksheets, allows instructor to customize teaching strategies.
  • NEW! Guidelines for relating to the camera and its particular form of scrutiny, and exploration of the onscreen vs. onstage contrast.

  • NEW! Twenty lively new exercises to get students up and active rather than just thinking about how they will perform.

  • NEW! Updated quotations from actors whose careers have taken off in the last few years.
