Interpreting daily lives in earlier eras through reading, discussion, research, and performance. Plays of complex heightened language, in verse and prose, studied from perspective of character's daily lives and their relevance to contemporary performance skills. Scenes, monologues, and soliloquies rehearsed and performed.

Change in Rotation: THE 433 Period Styles in Acting is viewed as a preparatory course for period performance work in the University Theatre season. It is advantageous to offer the course to the students in the semester prior to the production. In the 2016-17 production season, an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor will be auditioning and performing in the spring. The update to the class rotation is in line with that decision.


Change in Methodology: More accurately reflects teaching method in the course.


Change in Prerequisite: The prerequisite was removed because the THE 493 course is no longer offered. THE 203 Theory and Practice of Acting was added as a prerequisite so students are prepared with basic performance vocabulary.
