Theatre at Grenfell is a four year BFA program with a focus on the theatre. Acting students will complete one acting class per year and participate in mainstage productions beginning in second year. In addition, starting in third year, acting students will do one master class per semester.
Our acting classes begin with a focus on fundamentals: voice, movement, and speech. These skills are developed through four years of acting classes, which develop into scene study and more specific skill development over time. It is important to note that all of our full-time faculty are also working theatre practitioners, who continue to develop their professional lives while engaged in teaching our students.
These classes are supplemented by a master class system - our master teachers are drawn from the profession and join us for shorter, more intense and specific training situations. Past master teachers have included professional actors, artistic directors, movement specialists and singers. The master system means that all of our students receive a wide, diverse, and exciting program.
