THEA 100 - Introduction to Acting

FC ARHU
4 credits
This course is designed for actors and other theater practitioners, regardless of their level of experience. Built on the principle that the actor’s job is to live truthfully under imaginary circumstances, the course offers an innovative approach that places that creative process at the forefront of study. Over the course of the semester, students will explore the process of creating character, first in self-generated work that begins as individual exploration and develops through interaction with other actors in class. With those skills learned, students will be assigned a scene and partner and embark on a very specific rehearsal process designed to delve deeply into the world of character and the playing of scripted material. Admission to the course requires a simple audition and interview process.
