NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
The Acting Associates of Arts degree begins with an immediate immersion into the Theatre Production Program. The students are closely supervised in their experience in and out of the classroom and on stage for live performances.
In addition to Liberal Arts requirements, Acting degree students must successfully complete the Acting sequence: Acting I-IV, Theatre History I-II, Movement for the Actor I-II, Movement for Musical Theatre, Voice for Stage, a four-course sequence in Production & Performance, and ENG 252 (Shakespeare on Stage and Page).
The courses offered encompass the fundamental training of the actor as a theatrical instrument. Physicalization, characterization and interpretation are applied to improvisations, monologues and scenes. Actor's script analysis, psychological and emotional preparation are emphasized in scene and monologue study.
