Concentration in Theatre
The Theatre concentration provides instruction in theatre history, literary appreciation of dramatic literature, dramatic interpretation, and the performance skills demanded of a thespian (theatre artist). It requires the completion of 32 Theatre Arts credits.
The concentration in Theatre program offers the opportunity to supplement a major area of study with knowledge to become well-rounded actor, director or theatrical writer. It is dedicated to polishing students' skills and making them competent stage technicians and directors. Our Theatre programs have a tradition of producing students versed in classic, drama, comedic and musical practices on the stage.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
|Principles of Directing||Fundamentals of play-directing, emphasizing research techniques, promptbook formatting, and historical investigation of directorial theories.|
|Improvisation||Covers the fundamentals of playing into situation without a script, learning techniques for ensemble, and exploring theatre games for actor development.|
