Towards the Limelight [electronic resource]: Mastering Skills and Techniques

Denver Center Media
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This documentary, filmed in a cinema verite style at the National Theatre Conservatory, follows eight student-actors through their first year of the master's degree program, an intensive daily regimen of voice, dance, elocution, and acting instruction. Initially uncomfortable with the strangeness of acting together and with some of the classes, such as trapeze work, the students begin to gel as a group and demonstrate why they were selected out of hundreds for this prestigious program.
