This course will provide a broad survey of the basic components of theatre. Because theatre is a study of the possible, that is, what may result from the collaboration of many talents, we will study it from a number of different perspectives. We will examine plays, the history of theatre as an art, acting, technical theatre, theatre’s impact on society, and important practitioners in the field. Plays are unique in all of literature, because they are only finished in performance in front of an audience. To understand how plays come to their complete realization, we will see several productions, both on and off campus. The student will be responsible for the cost of one ticket for an off campus production.
