Gingerbread houses have been a holiday tradition for many generations of many different cultures.  The instructor will provide gingerbread house pieces and several different choices for fastening them together.  Then, we will use the candy you folks bring (we can share with each other and the instructor will bring others) to decorate it however you like.  While the houses set up, we’ll break for lunch. The university cafeteria is about $8 for an all-you-can-eat lunch or bring your own. Don’t forget to bring candy to share.  Necco wafers, M&M’s, Tootsie Rolls are just a few of my favorites

       Introduction to Theatre

        Monday & Wednesday                 September 24, 26

         9:30 – 11:00 AM

The purpose of Introduction to Theatre is to increase students' understanding, appreciation, and critical perceptions of the theatrical event.  The class will focus on the elements of theatre, artists and innovators of theatre throughout history, and on the theatre's development as an art form and a social phenomenon and participation in class discussions and sharing of critiques.  My goal is to encourage your understanding and enjoyment of theatre.

        Acting

        Monday & Wednesday & Monday                 October 1, 3, 8

         9:30 – 11:00 AM

This class is about building confidence and having fun!  Acting is about developing character and exploring through individual and group exercises, monologues and scene studies.  This course helps students develop their acting potential and sharpen their skills. Previous theatre experience is not required.  As this is an introductory acting class, we will start slowly, based on the group and its abilities. Don’t be nervous or intimidated; be STRONG.

Technical Support

           Monday & Wednesday                                October 15, 17

            9:30 – 11:00 AM  

Technical Support is a course that provides the opportunity to learn about the crafts and technologies of the “backstage” world of the theatre.  Students acquire overview knowledge of theatre production, set design and construction, lighting design, sound, costumes, props, make-up and management.  As a beginning technician, students will learn to interpret and execute a theatrical designer's plans.  Being involved in theatre means knowing about the front and backstage elements.

Musical Theatre

           Monday & Wednesday                                  October 22, 24

            9:30 – 11:00 AM  

In a lecture and discussion format, students explore the history and examples of musical theatre to illustrate the impact of this genre of theatre.  Selected works are considered from the context of their relationship with historical and artistic values. Genres explored will include opera, burlesque, pantomime, vaudeville, the revue and musical comedy.   Why is musical theatre a favorite of audiences?
