Acting 2: Scene Study & Character Development


Working with monologues and scenes from award winning plays, this course is designed to continue your training and to connect physically and emotionally to the text. Dive deep into the context of a play and its characters by defining the core given circumstances in order to carve out a performance that is clear and precise. Designed to focus on the individual’s growth, this class is great to take for several terms!



South Bend Civic Theatre’s mission and core value is that every human, no matter financial situation or status, should be able to experience and grow through arts education. Through the generosity from patrons, local organizations, and grants we are pleased to offer scholarships to interested students who need financial assistance with class tuition.

  • If your family’s household income is less than $55,000, you are eligible to apply for financial assistance for South Bend Civic Theatre’s classes and camps. Please note that awards may be available at a higher income level, however, priority is given to families with incomes below $55,000. Proof of the previous year’s annual income in the form of a free/reduced lunch certificate from the school, a tax return, or current pay stubs must be provided if requested by the South Bend Civic Theatre administration.
  • Since Funds are limited, scholarships are awarded on a first come first serve basis.
  • If scholarships run out for a session, students will be placed on a waiting list to receive tuition assistance once funds become available.
  • Scholarship assistance will be only eligible for one student, one class, and one session at a time. If you would like to register for an additional class or camp, an additional session, or another child in your household, complete your first order including payment. If scholarship funds are still available after all eligible participants have been finalized for the session, you may register additional students or classes utilizing scholarship funds.
  • South Bend Civic Theatre believes that each participant should demonstrate a level of commitment to the program.
  • SBCT rarely offers 100% scholarship because we want those participating to “buy into” the program. Even though a family may only be required to pay a reduced amount as low as $15.00, we believe that this amount shows a shared commitment to the work.
  • Special circumstances are always considered in any final decisions when it comes to offering financial assistance.


What happens if I want to cancel my registration into a class?

  • If you cancel your registration after it has been processed, but at least two weeks before the class begins, we will refund tuition, less a $25 registration fee per class; a $50 fee for full-day classes and camps; and a $100 fee for Academy Programs.

  • If you cancel your registration less than two weeks before the class starts, no refund will be given. Any tuition paid for the canceled class, minus the registration fee becomes a credit, which you may use towards future classes or camps which must be used through the end of the current season.

  • SBCT reserves the right to cancel a class if enrollment is insufficient. Any tuition paid will be refunded in full.

  • No refund or make-up classes will be provided for classes canceled due to inclement weather.

  • SBCT classes may not be canceled on days that area schools are closed due to weather conditions. Please keep an eye on our website as well as our Facebook page for any weather updates. You may also refer to our Bad Weather Guide.


All classes and workshops must have at least 6 participants registered; enrollment lower than six will result in a class cancellation.
• Cancellation 14 days or more prior to the start of classes: Full tuition will be reimbursed.
• Cancellation less than 14 days or more prior to the start of classes: Tuition can be transferred to another class, no refund.
• Cancellation after the start of classes: No refund or transfer.
