Aim and Purpose: The aim of this unit is to enable actors to develop and perform an act or turn as part of a Variety Show. Actors will devise their own material, rehearse it and
perform it. The world of the variety performer is, as the term suggests, wide and varied. Variety refers to any type of performance that an audience may nd entertaining. The roots of variety lie
in the worlds of music hall, circus, cabaret and vaudeville. Variety performers use a range of skills to develop material that they can present to an audience as an act or turn. Actors will
consider the constraints and opportunities presented by different kinds of venues that might include pubs, clubs, cruise ships, holiday camps and street theatre, and media such
as radio and television. The unit enables actors to develop performance techniques appropriate to the work of the variety entertainer and to create an individual repertoire. For instance,
through this unit, actors may develop comedy material that could be stand up or for a routine involving other performers. Alternatively, actors could use pre-existing songs or new material to
create a song-and-dance act or deploy techniques such as cross-dressing, acrobatics, ventriloquism, impersonation, mime, illusion or clowning as an integral part of
a speciality act. Actors may also consider using other elements such as outlandish props and costumes, puppets and digital technology as possible media within a speciality act.
With very few limitations on the form or content of a piece of work, there is tremendous scope in this unit for originality and invention. The very nature of variety lies in the unusual, the different,
the bizarre, the alternative and the unconventional. The key for actors is to experiment and test ideas and to nd a suitable audience for their own particular brand of entertainment.
