Theatre Arts 3500: Rehearsal and Performance

Faculty-directed productions at Penn are designed as credit-bearing courses. We believe that the production process is inherently a laboratory in which students—and faculty—conduct research. The intention is to provide students with deep intellectual and artistic immersion into the theatre-making through intensive research, rehearsal, and performance of a full-length stage piece.

Students may enroll in this course as actors (by audition only) or as assistant directors, stage managers, dramaturgs, or designers (by permission of the instructor). Theatre Arts 350 may be taken multiple times, as the process will be different for every project.

Though Theatre Arts majors are strongly encouraged to audition for as many productions as possible during their time at Penn, we welcome—and frequently cast—non-majors and other members of the Penn community.
