THR 300     Theater Production (4)

A balance between academics and studio work.  Students will learn about theatre history and production as well as actively participate in the mounting of a theatrical work.  Using the varied talents of the class, we will select polished scenes, a one act play, a full length play, or an interactive educational play about current issues.  The production may be a public performance or merely in-class final design and performance presentations.  If a public performance, members of the class will provide the artistic and technical staffing of the production, under the overall guidance of the class instructor.  Additional assistance may be provided by student volunteers not enrolled for credit.  Because theatre is an art which draws upon many areas of skill and intelligence, some reflective work will be done to document each student’s personal journey.  There will be some class visits to areas theaters and/or productions as these opportunities become available. Meets new General Education Arts requirement.
