|Description:||This program offers two main Theatre streams: Performance, and Production and Design. You will take courses in acting, voice and directing; or perhaps you are interested in technical production, lighting and stage design. For both streams, you will put on shows throughout your four years, giving you the experience to go on to work with recognized theatre companies -- or launch your own.
The Theatre program in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology is one of the performing and fine arts offered by the School for Contemporary Arts. This program is offered at the Vancouver campus. The performance stream emphasizes the development of the theatre artist. The studio courses are supplemented by courses in dramatic literature, theatre history, playmaking, and technical theatre. Courses chosen from disciplines outside theatre give the program an interdisciplinary component. Students are encouraged to participate in productions and to develop their own scripts and performance pieces.
