Theatre Practicum is the set of courses through which students earn credit for applying their learning in department productions. Students do this by performing on stage or helping backstage on a production team, in the shops, or on a run crew. Students do not have to be theatre majors to earn credit through practicum courses. There are two practicum course levels:
THTR 190 Theatre Practicum I
Requirements: Theatre majors must complete a minimum of two sections of THTR 190.
Requirements: Completion of THTR 290 requires a written reflection paper and an evalatuion meeting with the faculty instructor. Theatre majors must complete a minimum of two sections of THTR 290.
How to Register
Registering for Theatre Practicum requires faculty approval and the process depends on whether the practicum is performance or technical in nature.
*Applications are not the only factors that determine production assignments; experience, presence, attitude, and commitment are strongly considered as well.
Students interested in advanced production team positions should also seek advice from appropriate members of the faculty. Students interested in lighting, scenery, costume, sound, or prop design should talk with the design faculty. Students interested in stage management, dramaturgy, or directing should talk with the acting and directing faculty.
