Shakespeare in Performance: Speak the Speech
THEA 120
Spring 2015
Section: 01  

This course will give students the opportunity to analyze and experience Shakespeare's plays in performance. They will write critical essays that discuss the performance techniques required to bring Shakespeare's plays to life. They will also memorize and perform monologues and short scenes from Shakespeare's plays, putting the insights from their written papers into action. The focus will be on linking critical insights and performance practice rather than creating polished performances, so students will be welcome even if they have never acted before. The course will introduce students to the department's mission of integrating performance and practice. The final exam will consist of a performance accompanied by a research paper.
