Drama introduces students to theatre arts and covers the principles of improvisation and acting with considerable time devoted to theatre exercises and discussion. This course is a hands-on workshop where all students will be required to engage in the four main aspects of drama – reading, acting, directing and writing. Students will present several scenes during the semester, and the final project will be a dramatic monologue. This course strives to help students understand their own characteristics so that they may explore more deeply how playwrights, directors and actors bring characters to life.
