Actors and Playwrights
An investigation of playwriting from an actor's point of view. Students create a variety of scenes, monologues, and dialogue from sources including adaptation of non-dramatic text, improvisation, and creative dramatics. Students participate in all written and performance activities and begin to identify a personal technique and writing style. A ten-minute play is completed, edited through a series of drafts, and submitted as a final project. Prerequisite: Theatre 101 or 103 or permission.
