THST 450 Contemporary Scene Study

College of Performing Arts

3 credits 90.0 hours
400 level undergraduate course

This is an advanced scene study studio for actors focusing on the contemporary American playwrights and theatre makers shaping 21st century drama. The course is designed to familiarize actors with their work while further honing rehearsal and performance technique under the tutelage of a professional director. The plays will be read and researched; appropriate scenes will be selected, rehearsed and presented within the studio structure. The crucial building block of the process will be the notion of ‘action’ through which the actor makes strong imaginative and specific choices appropriate to the world of the play.
