This course provides practical experience in the processes required to build a theatrical production.

Students research, rehearse, and produce a performance for the public in collaboration with a faculty director. The number of students enrolled in the course will vary depending upon the demands of the play. Students with any or no experience in theater are welcome. In most cases, all assignments (cast and crew) will be made the previous term, through auditions and interviews.

Those interested in non-actor aspects of production (set design, light and sound design, stage management etc.) are especially encouraged. The course meets four days a week and those enrolled must be available for a certain amount of additional collaborative work outside class time (additional rehearsals, construction and tech, and final performance dates). A production schedule will be available by week one.

Evaluation is based on commitment to the particular demands of the project as well as a final reflective paper based on the experience. Default grading option is Credit/No Credit.
