The Ensemble

The Ensemble is a group of older high school aged actors who have participated for several sessions in the Guild. Ensemble actors perform the works of contemporary playwrights (such as Jean Giraudoux, Christopher Fry, Caryl Churchill, Samuel Beckett, Karen Hartman, to name a few) as well as original premiere works. Within rehearsals, the actors also discuss and practice audition techniques and develop their own head shots and acting resumes. The Ensemble culminates with a full production in the spring.

Mainstage

The Guild

Guild actors learn and practice advanced Steiner and Linklater speech techniques. In addition, basic Chekhov methods for building character through physicalization are introduced. Each member of this select group of actors has demonstrated exceptional dedication and ability in performing, and a desire to expand their acting talents and explore the directorial side of theatre. Guild members rehearse weekly with their age group, attend occasional weekend rehearsals with the Players and Guild, and perform in the mainstage production as a cohesive, multi-age cast.

The Players

Lumina’s youngest actors begin their exciting theatre experience as Players. They work with speech creatively, learn to develop basic characters, and practice the fundamentals of acting. Actors develop their verbal fluency in classic theatre using the techniques developed by Rudolph Steiner, and are given instruction in verbal and physical theatre styles and techniques. Players rehearse weekly with their age group, attend occasional weekend rehearsals with the Classics and Guild, and perform in the mainstage production as a cohesive, multi-age cast. All Players have speaking roles in the production and are expected to memorize and practice lines and execute basic stage directions.
