Theatre students from all disciplines and majors come together in two first-year Theatre Foundation courses. In your first-semester Theatre Making course, you’ll explore the artistic processes of theatre making within the contemporary landscape of the discipline. You’ll be part of a small cohort of students from all backgrounds working together in a collaborative atmosphere. In your second-semester class, Performance, you’ll work with faculty to learn specific performance techniques in acting, voice and movement. This will help you to assist actors in your future rehearsals.
During your first year, you’ll also dive right into your major with Introduction to Directing I and II, Stage Management I, and a Theatre Design course you’ll choose based on your interests.
