TA 100 Introduction To Theatre

TA-100-COVERCourse Objectives: Theatre is often considered a mirror that reflects an image of the world.  We will use this very special mirror to encounter and examine aspects of the human experience in historical and contemporary contexts.  Along the way, we will use the tools, processes and language of theatre to articulate complex perspectives on our world.
