We must work to get along.

I have to deliver my first conference paper. AND it’s over Zoom.

Drama 261 Acting Tools for Professional Presentation (5 cr, VLPA)

Students will use acting techniques to develop speaker and storyteller confidence in professional communication: especially beneficial for scientists, teachers, health professionals and engineers. The class prepares the individual to give a presentation, deliver a lecture, or communicate effectively with clients and patients.

Theatre really DOES change the world.

Drama 270 Survey of Great Theatre for Social Change (5 cr, VLPA)

This class looks at a sampling of the more influential plays ever written and performed, and how they advocated for social and political change. The class will consider plays that have directly engaged social and political problems, plays that began revolutions, and plays that quietly, persistently pushed the world toward a greater equity.
