Back Stage, March 27th – Objectives for Young Actors, by Rita Litton. ACTeen’s Rita Litton is often asked by her young acting students what they should be feeling; should they be “angry” or “sad”? Ms. Litton says that’s the wrong question. Acting is doing. An actor doesn’t come onstage to feel an emotion but to do something. So, what should they be doing? 1. Choose a strong objective 2. Focus on the action words, “Find me!” or “Stay with me,” let your imagination connect to these events. 3. Use the circumstances in the script to find the character’s recent or immediate wants. And, 4. Listen carefully to your partner and react spontaneously, honest feelings will occur.
