Students will explore the most effective way to tell stories in dramatic form and will emerge from the four-week course with one ten-minute play.
Through the study of the basic elements of drama (action, character, conflict, dialogue) and a variety of examples, students will receive one option of a way in which plays are created, while at the same time focusing in detail on writing their own piece.
This is a “learn by doing” class – students will learn through their own writing and encouraging other students in the process. Because of the workshop nature of the class, attendance is vital.
This class is on-going, and can be taken multiple times.
