Letter Grade or Pass/No Pass Option
Description: This performance-based course 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 through 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 drama majors and all students who have had some acting experience.
