    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I 100% reccomend this class. Laura is fantastic and you will grow as an actor so much with her in charge. She is insightful and will push you to be your best every single day. It is difficult to get an A in her class, but it should be. As an actor, you are never done learning.

    Course highlights:

    I loved all the reading we had to do for the class. You read a play every other week and then spend a lot of time on monolouges. You cannot be a good actor if you do not read a lot of the plays that are out there.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay ahead of the reading and really push yourself to pay attention in class. Its a lot of work but if you put it in, you will get great results.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Laura is one of the best professors that I have had at NCC. She makes learning interesting, and I look forward to going to her classes. In this course, she pushes you to try new things and make strong acting choices, which is really important in good acting.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned a lot of basic starting information about acting, which helped me in my future classes. I also developed two contrasting monologues that I am still able to take with me into auditions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are off-book for your scenes and monologues as soon as possible. It will help you to make stronger choices because you won't be acting with a sheet of paper or a book in your hand.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course for theatre majors. It really helps you develop your public speaking skills and know how to audition for a drama or comedy play. However, there was not much academic orientation besides the exercises we did in class. The acting performances were too much based in "choices" even if they were not natural. The teacher was not so organized and got out of the original syllabus in some occasions. Also, there was not enough feedback for written assignments and performances.

    Course highlights:

    We had to do a journal every week of what we had done, detailing the exercises, rehearsals, performances, etc. The course also required us to see at least one of three performances. The monologues and partner scenes were real highlights of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Rehearse your scenes in front of other people. Also, read the plays before you choose a scene for monologues.
