This course will provide an in-depth study of theater as it pertains to performance and production, essentially creating opportunities for students to develop communication and interpretive skills as actors, speakers, and technicians, and to demonstrate their artistic and personal growth through the performance of these skills. Some course goals include the development of techniques as both actors and as a part of the crew, the application of critical thinking skills through analysis of the theater and performance, the progression of self-confidence and poise, and the creation of an environment of community in which all students feel responsible to the group as a whole.
