Book Review


This guide for teachers is a remarkable way to teach students certain points of acting, allowing the student to do an activity while learning things at the same time. The activities range from "The Infamous Actor X Takes the Stage" to fun trivial games that will get students thinking. Plus, as an added bonus, this book can be used by students to learn by themselves just what an actor ought to know while performing. By the end of the book, actors should be able to take the stage and perform small skits and plays (not included) in front of small audiences, eventually working their confidence levels up to performing plays in front of large audiences.
