This class is designed to give you a taste of what the rich, dynamic, and multidimensional art form of theatre is all about. We’ll be talking about what theatre practitioners do, looking at the processes of acting, directing, playwriting, and design from behind the scenes. And we’ll be reading, watching, discussing, and writing about a number of plays that represent only a very tiny cross-section of what’s out there. It’s my hope that you’ll continue your study of theatre long after this semester ends, whether as artists yourselves, or as informed and engaged audience members – there’s lots left to discover!
