Intro to Theatre is an introductory class allowing students to comprehensively and actively understand the entire theatrical production process from the page to the stage. Students discover theatre in an immersive way, studying and gaining insight into the actual texts of works being produced in Todd Theatre. In conjunction with professional artists who direct and design our productions, students explore the creative and artistic process and gain first-hand, practical knowledge working in one of many labs associated with the production (scenery, lighting, costume, sound, etc.). A unique class melding the theoretical and practical.
