THTR 2240 Dramaturgy Basics (Fall: 1 )

Course Description

This course is a lecture course with an associate lab: THTR1027. The major emphasis is on the practice and application of the art and science of dramaturgy. While some theoretical material will be included and referenced, the purpose is to train students to dramaturg productions. The class will introduce some of the typical dramaturgical tasks and provide guidance and feedback on their execution. More importantly, it will frame the dramaturgical point of view so students will be able to effectively navigate the role in production. Over the course of the semester students will work on: Script selection and analysis, production dramaturgical research and response, in-rehearsal practice and protocol, audience contact – program notes, lobby display and talk backs, new play development, building a theatrical season, and civic engagement.
