In Company III, advanced players start to learn nuanced elements of verbal, physical and emotional performances that can affect an audience without their realizing it. They learn how to make an audience member root for, fear, laugh at or despise the appropriate character. The separation between actor and character becomes complete, as performers understand that nothing about their character reflects on them.
Adaptations of classic stories and intriguing original works provide balanced roles that delight players and audience members alike. Players are constantly challenged to take roles they have not experienced before, stretching their abilities and keeping them from being overlooked by future directors.
*All Company and Broadway performers in levels II through IV are required to register for 1 free acting technique elective.
If you love creativity and adventure, then Company's Robyn Hood is the production for you. In many ways, it is the perfect Company production because the story already provides so many wonderfully balanced roles that allow the actors to appear through the entire story. There is Robyn, the archer who has become an outlaw to protect the poor. Marion, Little Joan, Scarlett, Wyllow and all those who join Robyn's struggle against the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham and his bullying officers. Songs are featured throughout the adventure, but dancing is replaced by physical combat. There are battle scenes with swords, bows and quarter-staffs. There is also a heavy focus on spoken dialogue as each actor has a large amount of lines full of drama and clever comedy. So, join the adventure of lifetime with Robyn Hood!
