In this course, students will analyze theater ranging from the Greeks to modern-day. As we work our way through history, we will study scripts and do performance readings from each time period. Students will learn to bring the stories of one’s fate to life with tragedies like Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex and Euripides’ Medea. We will find humor in European farces such as Molière’s Tartuffe and Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, and discover how comedy can be used to deliver harsh criticism of class, race, and society. Journeying into the modern era, we will perform sections of American works such as The Crucible, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Our Town, examining human conflict, everyday life, and unique staging that demands much of the actor. Additional topics that will be covered include: morality plays, commedia dell’arte, Elizabethan theater, Kabuki, and 21st century plays. All the world’s a stage. Come discover what it’s all about!
