Finding the Gold in the Script
by Bruce Miller, author of The Scene Study Book and Acting Solo

Praise for The Scene Study Book and Acting Solo:
“I read the book in one sitting last night. Your description of breaking down and performing White People is fascinating. And I think your book is chockablock full of crucial, useful nuggets. A very valuable book.”   --JT Rogers, playwright

“I have read many ‘acting books’ over the years, this is the first that unlocks the true path to connecting the dots to creating truth. Bravo!”   --Frank Grillo, actor

In Actor’s Alchemy, the third in the Roadmap to Success series, drama pioneer Bruce Miller uncovers an aspect of the acting process that is seldom taught in a simple and tangible way in the classroom or studio: using the script in a specific and analytic way that can smelt any story into playable gold. In this book, Miller discusses sifting for character, mining for physical action, digging for the story, and much more.

Many actors consider the script to be a jumping-off point for their own work, but disconnecting from the script and playwright is like beginning a journey across an unknown territory without a map. Actor’s Alchemy shows how to effectively read the map (or script), where to mine for essential nuggets of information, and ultimately make choices that will lead to a golden performance.

Bruce Miller is an associate professor and the Director of Acting Programs at the University of Miami, where he teaches acting and script analysis. His articles on acting appear regularly in Dramatics magazine and Teaching Theatre. He has conducted acting workshops nationally and internationally, including a series for the Educational Theatre Association’s Professional Development Program.
