Page and Stage

You will develop a deep understanding and hands-on application of the entire process of creating dramatic works for the stage. You'll learn to "think dramatically" by going through all the steps of brainstorming, journaling, and improvising to come up with ideas for monologues, skits, and short plays. You'll then develop these ideas using elements of acting, such as actor/character relationships, voice and diction, script analysis, development of objectives and tactics, upgrading the obstacles and conflict in a scene, and character development. This course combines Creative Writing for the Theater with Topics In Theater, but you don't have to be a Theater or Creative Writing student to enroll - you need just an open mind and a willingness to engage with the material.
