Drama 259, Beginning Acting, taught by L. Zane
A-Term MTWTh 10:50-12:50 Hutchinson 218
An introductory acting class designed for all levels. No experience necessary. The course will involve work with contemporary texts, plays and screenplays, improvisation and theater games. The primary aim is to stimulate the imagination and to inspire insightful and authentic storytelling. Acting is a child’s game – at the adult level – come play!
Drama 490, Singing for Actors, taught by Scott Hafso
A-Term June 20th-July 8th MWF 9:40-11:40 HUT 208
This course prepares actors to sing for auditions and on stage. In addition to developing singing skills, the class explores song structure and interpretation, and the application of acting theory to song performance practice. The course culminates in a cabaret-style performance, open to the public.
Drama 457, Creating Drama, taught by L. Zane
B-Term TTH 1:10-5:00 HUT 218
In this course students will experiment and explore various ways of creating and building stories for the stage. Using a combination of published and original text, we will assemble a ‘play’ to be performed at the end of the term. Various performance and storytelling techniques, including improvisation and theater games, will be employed as investigative tools. The subject matter, the selection of material and the means of production, will be defined and developed by the student cohort, with faculty guidance and mentorship.
