Minor in Theatre Arts: Production/Performance
Summary of Requirements
Required courses 15 credits
THE 281: Repeat as necessary for a minimum of 6 credits.
The popularity of film, memes and viral videos, and streaming shows in this day and age overshadow the fact that theatre was among the earliest forms of popular entertainment and social media. As an enduring art rich in varying social contexts, theatre has always sought to engage, represent, and spotlight intersectional spectrums of communities and identities, and this course introduces students to the practice and power of theatre from page to stage. All areas of theatre and production will be explored, complemented by 1) a set of required lab hours outside class and 2) viewings of live performances and past performances via archival video links. Successful completion of this course is a requirement for declaring one's major/minor in Theatre Arts.
Permission of the instructor, gained through the assignment of a role behind the scenes ahead of the semester’s add/drop period during the first week.
This class is designed to help the students break down and analyze theatrical scripts through readings, reinforced by watching live performances in person and/or filmed productions online as well as the exploration of varying approaches, narrative frames, and techniques designed to maximize the clarity and power of theatrical storytelling and production. Open to non-majors.
This course provides students with a general overview of the business and administrative functions of non-profit and profit theatrical and performing arts organizations as well as an introductory look at the processes and responsibilities of production management, with specific consideration given to applications relevant to Deaf theatre practices. Open to non-majors.
