Character Opportunities

  • Use techniques such as tableaux and hot-seating to find out more about the characters and plays you are creating.
  • Show thanks for others’ performing to you by giving them a round of applause at the end of their performance.
  • Stay in role even if things go wrong. Try not to laugh and sustain your role – this will keep your performance professional.

  • Remain focused and make sure that you concentrate during lessons and performances to ensure the best outcome.
  • Work together as a team and communicate during rehearsals to ensure that you are creating the best piece of work that you can.
