Description: This course is a performance based class intended for students who have had some acting experience. Literature to Life introduces students to dramatic literature, traces the impact of that literature on the time period in which it was originally written, and then relates its influence on contemporary American culture and society. Literature to Life studies a variety of acting genres. Scene work is selected in co-ordination with curriculum in other disciplines. Students rehearse the scenes in the first half of the semester and perform the scenes for both on-campus classes and high schools in the second half of the semester. This course is intended for students who have completed Dramatic Arts 132 and are looking for performance experience. This course may be taken two times using plays from different historical periods.
