TAPS 0030 - Introduction to Acting and Directing

Instructors for 2013-14: Connie Crawford (Fall/Spring AM sections), Flordelino Lagundino (Fall PM section), and Devon Caraway McCorkle (Spring PM section). This class, for first-year students only, explores basic acting/directing concepts from a variety of perspectives including the use of the actor's imagination/impulsivity in the creation of truthful, dramatic performance; the body, as a way of knowing and communicating knowledge; and the voice, as a means of discovering and revealing emotion/thought.  There is a mandatory tech requirement.     If you are interested in the class, you must complete the questionnaire and either email it to the appropriate instructor or bring it to Orientation or the first day of class for the section you wish to attend. Priority is given to early applicants and no permission will be given during pre-registration.  

No prior experience is necessary  but classes in both semesters fill up quickly, so please submit an application in the fall even if you don't want to take it until the spring semester.

A departmental orientation  is held at the beginning of the Fall Semester as part of the larger campus-wide undergrad Orientation.  Attendance at this orientation is encouraged if you wish to join this class in either semester, as applicants for the spring sections are selected starting in the Fall.   Check your orientation brochures or the undergraduate orientation website for the location.
