The Actor's Experience
THEA 183
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

The Actor's Experience is a class that offers the opportunity to work on plays and scenes with student directors, examining (and experiencing) the actor-director relationship. Through in-class exercises and rehearsals, students will gain experience in analyzing, staging, and performing scenes. In-class exercises will be pulled from Suzan-Lori Parks's "365 Plays/365 Days," Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun," and Adrienne Kennedy's "The Owl Answers." Final, rehearsed scene work will be pulled from Branden Jacobs-Jenkins "Appropriate," Bruce Norris's "Clybourne Park," and Suzan-Lori Parks's "Fucking A."

The Actor's Experience welcomes both experienced and inexperienced actors. Newcomers welcome--it's a great way to get to know the community of the theater department. Students must be available for the entire class period, although you will not always be required to stay the entire time.
