Second Year [electronic resource]: Putting the Pieces Together

Denver Center Media
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Perhaps the toughest part of the course, the second year at the National Theatre Conservatory forces actors to cope with the demands of working on multiple projects. In this program, the eight students, now closer and more at ease with each other, must stage a production of The Merchant of Venice in addition to crafting solo Shakespeare performances. John Barton, founding member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, guides their efforts. The hard-working thespians learn the value of dramaturgical analysis of lines. To supplement their curriculum, they do television analysis and begin to field understudy positions and their first company castings.
