This program will consist of performance studies leading to a theatrical production. This may be a full-length play, a one-act play festival, or a sketch comedy/improvisation show as determined by the faculty. Students will experience training in acting, directing, movement, and vocal techniques in order to utilize these skills in the final performance.

Drawing upon the interdisciplinary nature of theatre, this program may involve acting in a play, dramaturgical work, assistant directing, stage management, set, costume, lighting and sound design, set and costume construction, publicity, and all the other areas related to successful play production. For example, after auditioning, a student will spend about half to three quarters of program time in rehearsal, and the rest of the time working in the shop building the set or on some other aspect of the production. A student presenting a technical portfolio could become part of the technical/design team for the show, as well as the publicity coordinator. In short, every student will participate in more than one area of the production process.

The first seven to eight weeks of the program will be spent in rehearsal culminating in final performance. In addition to rehearsals and production work, students will examine dramaturgical matters in seminar, closely related to the production. These may include readings addressing the social, political, economic, and cultural environment of the performance.

All students who are interested in interviewing/auditioning for the program should contact Professor Grodzik directly. While this program is designated sophomore and above, interested freshmen are encouraged to apply.
