The advanced class in rehearsal and performance will provide students with the opportunity to rehearse and and perform under professional circumstances following union guidelines. Teaching will occur within the rehearsal context, and special skills and problems will be dealt with in one-on-one situations with faculty coaches. Fourth-year students will have a variety of experiences in black box and main stage settings. A studio format will be used, and students will present a repertoire of four fully mounted plays throughout the fall and spring semesters. These plays will be presented to the public.
