THT291: An Introduction to the British Stage
Program Dates: August 2–18, 2013
Through this 4-credit international seminar, students can see the world's best plays and musicals and learn how these productions are made from page to stage. To prepare for the trip, students will read short essays by some of the most significant playwrights, directors, actors, and designers. Those readings will guide our viewing of at least twelve memorable performances in London and Edinburgh—a number of which will be world premieres, and a Shakespeare production at Shakespeare's Globe on the River Thames.
COR291: An Introduction to the British Stage is 4-credits and fulfills Gordon College's Aesthetic Sensibilities and Practice Thematic Core (Fine Arts under the old core).
Students may also design a 2-credit guided study to be undertaken in conjunction with the basic course (at an additional tuition charge of $700). Contact Prof. Norm Jones for information.
N.B. Global Understanding core credit is NOT available for this seminar.
Registration for international seminars is handled by the GEO. After accepted students have paid their deposit to the GEO, the GEO will send a list of the seminar participants to the Registrar’s office.
