Course Description:

We will learn the basics of live theater through a rehearsal based classroom,
working towards a performance at the end of the fall and spring semesters.


Class Time:

  • Classroom time is almost exclusively stage driven.
    We are either auditioning, reading through new scripts, blocking, or rehearsing.

Homework Requirements:

  • Time at home should be spent on preparing for the roles the student has been given,
    whether by learning and memorizing lines, or working on stage directions.
  • A commitment to memorizing lines is a must!



  • based on participation and memorization.


  • scripts provided via lab fee
  • costumes for fall and spring plays
