Course Description

Thornton Wilder called theatre "the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being." By introducing the student to theatre as a socially expressive art form, this course illuminates aspects of history and human relations through interdisciplinary study. Students of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply their knowledge and experiences to class discussion as we explore the process and place of theatre in societies of the past and present. "Introduction to Theatre" provides the student of any background with an opportunity to intermix his or her own interests with both the performing arts and cultural studies.
