THST 181 Acting for Non-Majors I

College of Performing Arts

2 credits 45.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

This course introduces the non-actor to improvisation, character development, and the basic idea of action and objective in performance. The first four weeks acclimate the new actor to being expressive in a group using body and voice through improvisation, theater games, and movement; breathing and relaxation techniques are also taught. The student is introduced to script analysis and asked to write and develop monologues to create dramatic characters for performance. Grading is based on class participation and progress with the work on monologues.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
