THEA 311 - Acting: Intro to Performing Shakespeare


2 credit(s)
Shakespeare’s plays demand all of an actor’s humanity and training as they speak directly and powerfully to an audience’s intellect, emotions, and nervous system. This course introduces intermediate actors to the many tools and perspectives required for playing Shakespeare, drawing on the approaches of John Barton, Kristin Linklater, and Patrick Tucker, among others. Students will learn about the uses of imagery, rhetoric, and scansion and will put these tools to work in performance. Students will leave class having developed a sonnet, a monologue suitable for auditions, and at least one scene.
Prerequisite(s): THEA 110   and THEA 112 .
