Catalog 2014-2015

The senior seminar in theater is an exciting opportunity for theater majors to unify all they have learned in the major and apply it to a theatrical area of their choice. Following departmental approval, students may direct a full-length play, act in a major role, design and/or technically direct a production, write a play, or research a major topic in theater. Recent seminars in theater have included directing True West and Steel Magnolias, acting the title role in Hamlet, Macbeth, and George in Of Mice and Men, designing Baby with the Bathwater, stage managing A Streetcar Named Desire, writing the one-act Seven Ways to Oblivion, and producing research papers on major plays and playwrights. This is a rare chance to practice what you have studied in a supportive atmosphere with highly individualized mentoring.
