Theatre Arts 3 explores the highly complex areas of theatre. Emphasizes acting, elements of play production, study of theatrical literature and theatre history. Builds on the background established in Theatre Arts 1 and 2, continuing the study of the cultural contributions of the theater, its plays, and its performance and production styles and techniques. Basic principles of production are studied and applied through performances in various theatrical modes for major productions. These courses will place an emphasis on higher level and critical thinking skills, will provide for creative productive thinking, stress cognitive concepts and processes, and include instructional strategies that accommodate the learning styles of the students. Participation in additional festivals, performances, and productions is strongly encouraged. Mandatory participation in departmental performances and attendance of a minimum of two live theatre performances per semester is required.
