About the Book:

Of all the subjects taught in the school system, dramatic arts probably has the greatest potential to help students prepare for life.

The study of acting helps students develop personal and social skills: increased poise and confidence, better awareness of their physical and vocal selves, and an improved ability to think and react quickly. These talents can help in dealing with sometimes difficult real life situations.

The intention of Acting Skills for Life is to integrate personal growth and the process of creative drama with the more formal skills required for stage production.

This is a very practical textbook on acting technique, full of suggestions for drama exercises and improvisations, developed by Ron Cameron over more than thirty years of teaching college drama, and includes helpful information for teachers working with students on stage productions.

What people say:
