Field of Study:Acting
Drama and Dramatics/Theatre Arts, General
Description:The study of Theatre, Drama and Performance examines the relationship between the artists who create written texts intended for production, the artists who turn scripts into performances, and the audiences who experience the resulting theatrical event. It is the study of the event itself, and the acts of creation involved in producing that event. Understanding Theatre, Drama and Performance involves the study of plays, actors, theatres, designers and audiences from the classical Greek stage to the most modern experimental performance.

Theatre, Drama, and Performance Studies (TDPS) integrates creative and scholarly approaches to theatre through a common emphasis on dramaturgy. In addition to specific courses in developmental and production dramaturgy, the TDPS program includes courses that examine theatre history, dramatic literature, critical theory, playwriting, devising, and intermedial performance, among others. TDPS provides students with first-rate academic experience and credentials, while offering them ample opportunities for creative application of acquired knowledge and skills through practical components and practice-based research projects. All courses are taken at U of T Mississauga.
