Handbook on improvisational acting.
The purpose of this work is to create "Handbook on Improvisational Acting" to be used by teachers of acting on the high school and college level. At the outset, background information is provided regarding the process of improvisational acting and its use in contemporary theatre. Assumptions attempt to justify the inclusion of a course of improvisational acting in an acting curriculum, and related literature is surveyed to indicate the absence of similar literature. Discussion of the central problem, that of creating the handbook, follows. Sources for the handbook include the introduction. The handbook itself is conceived in three chapters, the first to focus upon objectives of improvisational acting, the second upon the methods of instruction, and the third upon a daily lesson plan. An appendix indicating sources used completes the handbook.
