THST 445 - Scene Study in American Playwrights

3 credits
This Senior acting studio focuses on American master playwrights of the 20th century: O’Neil, Miller, Albee, Williams, Shepard, etc. Scenes are chosen to give students the opportunity to explore fully the emotional lives of characters and learn how to become more expressive and imaginative in their acting choices. The work of this course demands the complete investment of the actor through transformation of self into character in these heightened, highly theatrical texts. Improvisation and exercises may also be included in the work sessions.

Prerequisites THST*301

Open to Acting, Applied Theater Arts and Musical Theater majors only.
