The Theater Arts Summer course is created for students who have no theater background but, in a fun way, wish to improve their ability to communicate. The Theater Arts Summer course will develop the skills and techniques for you to become a powerful speaker while exploring your creativity potential. There will be a variety of projects, including short ensemble and scene work, and from the process you will become a confident leader, problem solver, and of course, dynamic communicator.

Units of Study Include:

o Orientation/Trust/Ritual
o Movement/Ensemble
o Improvisation
o Voice/Diction and Storytelling
o Script Analysis/Script Creation
o Production Theater

Successful completion of this course satisfies either the Public Speaking or Performing Arts graduation requirement, but not both.
