Acting for Life

A textbook on acting
By: Jack Frakes

Age Level: All Ages

Of all the arts, drama -- with its exploration of human characters and relationships -- is closest to everyday life. This theatre textbook emphasizes this connection, presenting the fundamentals of drama and acting techniques in the context of ordinary experiences and interaction. The material is arranged sequentially especially with the drama teacher in mind. Subjects progress from basic stage and acting terminology to more advanced lessons on acting theories. Each chapter includes exercises, activities, and discussion questions carefully selected to reinforce the text. An excellent drama textbook for use with both advanced as well as beginning acting students.

(312 pages, 5½ x 8½, paperback)
