Performing Arts – DirectingC0004655
Credits: BUHS 8, Sending Schools 2
Duration: Full Year
This is a rigorous academic course for students who wish to learn more about directing for the stage and other technical aspects of theatre production. Previous acting experience is highly recommended as students will both direct and act with classmates in a number of directing exercises and scenes. Active daily participation if required. Students must be eager to take creative risks and to receive critical feedback on their work. Because this course may qualify as English III or English IV for some students, rigorous academic work is included in the curriculum. Students write eight major essays, a research paper, frequent short reviews, and prepare a director’s prompt book. Note: this course is offered every other year on a rotating basis with Performing Arts – Acting.
Notes: English III or English IV credit provided English II has been previously completed. *Open to sophomores in Visual & Performing Arts Academy.
