An introduction to the fundamentals of beginning acting, The Actor in You enhances students' appreciation of the art of acting by helping them realize that they already possess, in principle, the basic skills of the actor: the ability to play a role, the ability to fulfill the sense of drama and to structure dramatic scenes, and the capacity to express emotion. Drawing exercises and examples from students' everyday lives and from well-known films and television programs, Robert Benedetti succeeds in deducing dramatic principles from those experiences and then applying them to everyday life for artistic purpose. Written in a personal and direct style, Benedetti presents a balance of theory and practical application in a clear and accessible format. Through a sixteen step organization, The Actor in You provides a direct, concise presentation and explanation of fundamentals for beginning students.
