|SECTION 01 In-person only|
|Major Readings: Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore
Students will be assigned at least one play to read each week. The assigned texts offer examples of various dramatic structures and theatrical techniques that can shape a play. Writing exercises will often be based on the reading.
|Examinations and Assignments: |
Short weekly writing assignments are designed to ignite a creative vision and develop the playwrights' voice. Students will be assigned specific workshop sessions where longer pieces will be read aloud and discussed by their peers. For the final project, each playwright will write, through a series of submissions and revisions, a one-act play of at least 20 pages and stage an excerpt from this piece.
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
The Theater Department organizes a variety of performances for students enrolled in its courses. Field trips to see performances off campus are integrated into course syllabi. Instructors will notify students of all dates at the beginning of the semester and costs for all course field trips are covered (specifically, transportation to and from the performance and tickets). Any potential scheduling conflicts for field trips should be discussed with faculty members. Once students indicate that they are going and tickets are purchased, it is assumed they will attend. (Students backing out of field trips they had said they would attend will be asked to cover the cost of their ticket.)Performances of visitors to Wesleyan's Center for the Arts are integrated into course syllabi and students are required to attend these performances unless otherwise negotiated with instructors. Tickets for performances are available to students at the Box Office in Usdan at the reduced price of $6.00.
