Class Description: This class is for students who have had prior exposure to drama, whether they have taken a previous CPC drama course or performed in an outside theater production. We will work on advanced theater techniques, focusing on believable emotions through dialogue and character development. Students are expected to have an extensive knowledge of the basics of theater (terms, stage areas, directions, etc.). Emphasis for this course is placed on intense emotional work and comfort levels of performance in front of large audiences.

Students will perform various smaller skits, with an opportunity to perform a musical as the showcase in the spring.
