This course introduces the discipline of acting for the stage and is appropriate for students with varying degrees of theatre experience, including none at all. Daily physical and vocal work, exercises in concentration, awareness, simple action, and representation comprise the bulk of classroom instruction. Emphasis is placed on collaborative relationships and principles for fostering creative conditions; students are expected to spend significant time rehearsing together outside of class. When possible, the class culminates in a public performance. Attending some live performance events in the community and writing papers detailing and reflecting on these performances is required.General Education: Artisitic Expression
