Theatre 4 allows students to pursue the fundamentals of stage direction. It emphasizes the artistic and collaborative development of auditioned acting students. Scenes are drawn from the Greeks, Shakespeare, Moliere, Chekhov, Williams, and Wilson, among others. Course work may include the following: directing and advanced acting, script and character analysis, and design concepts. Students refine the skills studied in Theatre 1, 2 and 3. Course work includes Viewpoints (movement based acting), improvisation, methods of acting, history of theatre and script development. In addition to classwork, students are required to view two live theatrical productions outside of the classroom and are encouraged to participate in the State Thespian Conference.
