Acting IMPROVISATION IN MUSICAL THEATRE UNIT

OVERALL OBJECTIVE: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the use of improvisation as it connects to musical theatre by performing an improvised scene and evaluating improvisation exercises. *

DISCRIPTION: Improvisation breaks down the barrier between mind and voice. It is the theatrical equivalent to jazz music. It increases the mind’s ability to form ideas, and present them in a coherent, relevant manner. This skill can translate to almost any profession. Understanding the basic improvisation skills will help musical theatre performs understand that musical theatre is more than just singing and dancing.

LESSON 2: Improvisation with vocal responses.
LESSON 3: Improvisation with movement.
LESSON 4: Improvisation for character study.
LESSON 5: Improvisation for sensory awareness.
