Acting: Onstage and Off
Barton's humorous and conversational writing style makes this a particularly student-friendly text. Students learn all phases of actor training - including scene study, auditioning, observation, and mind, voice and body relaxation techniques. The use of examples from daily life instead of dramatic literature makes it possible to have meaningful class discussions when all students have not read the same plays.
