dc.description.abstract For most theatre artists, their goal is to invest some time every day into their craft. For some actors, that may be reviewing old monologues or reading about new breath support techniques. For directors, reading newly reviewed plays may be the best choice for the day. One item, however, that sometimes slips between the woodworks of a working artist can be the idea of reflection. In the theatre there is the universal understanding that a portion of the craft is in the reflection process. As a theatre artist, one must take time during their work to reflect on their growth and their practice. Choosing to ignore this important factor can produce negative effects on the development of an actor. Creating set aside time to reflect on newly acquired skills can be extremely valuable for any theatre artist.
