Every other year the Theatre Department offers TH 101 Life in the Theatre. This year we have twenty students enrolled, most of whom are Theatre majors. This semester we will have guest artists visit our class: professional actors, designers, directors and working artists in the field of stand-up comedy, technical theatre and musical theatre. Students in Life in the Theatre will be able to interview these artists about their career choices and their artistic process. In addition, students in this class will work on their audition material, portfolio presentations and learn skills to strengthen their interview techniques. During the semester, we will also discuss Equity contracts, internship possibilities, and check into what other regional LORT Theatres are doing across the country.
