Theatre Production provides practical hands-on experience in acting and stagecraft through the preparation and public performances of plays. These curricular laboratories supplement the other theatre courses which concentrate on theories, information, and techniques, by providing for the integration and implementation of these ideas and skills. Although these courses may meet during a regularly scheduled class period, the scope of activities will probably require more time. Consequently, the courses may meet outside of regular school hours. Students participating in these courses should be afforded opportunities to observe preparation and productions of educational, community, and professional theatre companies. Lab time/production work requires time outside the school day; sometimes weekends and holidays. Mandatory participation in departmental performances and attendance of a minimum of two live theatre performances per semester is required.
