This course is an introduction to Western Theatre, from the ancient Greece to the 21st Century, including its history, language and vocabulary, and the basic components and principles of theatrical design. Students will discover what makes a story come alive in a theatrical production, will understand how live theatre performance differs from social ritual and electronic media, will become more discerning and appreciative of theatre, and will bring out their own creativity.


Students in this course are required to attend one live theatre performance during the term, at their own expense.
