This course may be repeated for credit.

This course offers students the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of Theater Department produced works each semester, such as projects approved as part of our Senior Capstone program. This usually includes both single-semester senior projects, Honors Thesis productions, and guest artist collaborations.

Student performers will work under a project director, learning skills and techniques through a hands-on, project-based process. Student stage managers will have the opportunity to lead or assist the rehearsal process, with faculty advisement. Student assistant directors will hone their skills by close collaboration with the project directors. Student dramaturges will embark in a variety of deep-research tasks and close-reading of the production materials and/or text(s), as guided by the instructor. This is a recommended course for students that are considering pursuing their own capstone projects in theater.

Students interested in enrolling in this class should audition for acting roles, or apply for stage management, dramaturge, or assistant directing positions.
