DRAMA S337 — Elements of Producing

2 credits
Fall
Elizabeth Whitaker, Stephanie Ybarra

This course serves to acquaint the actor with the work and responsibilities of the many people involved in theater-making beyond the rehearsal hall and to prepare them for what it might take to produce their own work. Students will examine the function, vision, and day-to-day operations of the various artistic, administrative, and production personnel within a variety of theater models - from larger commercial ventures and non-profit institutions to smaller off and off-off-Broadway models. Students will develop mission statements and seasons for their own prospective theatres, and present their visions to the class. Wherever possible, guest artists in the field will be brought in to talk about their process and work.
