If you are putting on a play with young performers, you must have this printout! Give out to all student actors before starting rehearsals. It’s full of helpful suggestions that will help make the experience better for everyone.
If you are doing a comedy performance, you and your students MUST read #7!
#3: Slow down and speak clearly. It’s important that the audience be able to hear every word you say. Young actors often rush through their lines because they are nervous. You may want to practice overly annunciating your words. In private, speak your lines almost as if you are chewing on each word. Make sure that every vowel and consonant are clearly articulated. Then, when it comes time to perform, relax back into more natural speech.
