About this Program

This program is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of and critical appreciation for the basic elements of theater, including acting, directing and playwriting. A study of the great traditions of theater and the development of skills can empower students toward their own clear and original voice. The program encourages the integration of theater skills within other disciplines as well as an emphasis on creating original works. The ability to communicate effectively and to better understand human motivation is important in one's business and life as they are onstage.
