Seven Characteristics of Good Stage Performance

i Mar 23rd No Comments by

1. Rate:  Being nervous can lead to rushed lines. Slow down!

2. Projection:  Speak loud enough that people on the back row can hear you.

3. Clarity:  Be careful to enunciate. Speak clearly without running words together.

4. Expression:  Over emphasize in your portrayal. Subtlety is not for the stage.

5. Pitch:  Use the full range of your voice. No monotony!

6. Stance:  Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Be careful not to fidget or do things that detract from your role.

7. Poise:  Be confident! When you make a mistake, don’t draw attention to it with giggles, eye rolls, grimacing etc. Moving on or starting over are the best things you can do.
