AbstractFor my Honors Thesis, Paul Thomson and I created an acting showcase that interweaved scenes, songs, and monologues. This showcase, called "Type A Talent," was a culmination of everything we have learned throughout our college journey as BFA majors. We crafted a script during the first semester, researching many musicals and plays. We focused on obtaining scenes from the variety of acting styles we have learned about including contemporary, Chekhov, Shakespeare, Moliere, and Musical Theatre. As the second semester began, we started rehearsing each of the pieces of our show, directing each other along the way. Our faculty advisors watched various rehearsals and gave us notes so that we could improve our work. Our 45-minute performance took place on Thursday, April 30tr, in the Harold Dixon Directing Studio of the Drama Building. We started off the show with a Commedia skit, then scenes, each of us did a monologue, I sang a solo, we sang a duet, and ended the show with dialogue from the musical, Pippin. Professors, family members, friends, and classmates attended our showcase. This performance was a nostalgic, poignant, and wonderful way to end our four years as actors at the U of A.
