ARTS 2225 - Theater Essentials

Arts & Sciences
This course provides a hands-on approach to theater professions and the appreciation of theater. Plays and scenes from different periods of Western Drama form the foundation for experiments in casting, costume design, setting, the use of stage-space and performance. Field trips to different types of theaters in Manhattan (Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway) will allow students direct experience as well as aid them in contextualizing the rich and varied theatrical history of New York City. The course professor will seek out discount and group rates for performances, but students will be expected to pay for their own tickets. Students will also participate in workshops designed to reveal the social issues of contemporary theater.
