Take a theatre or acting class at KCC this fall

KCC Theatre actors perform during a dress rehearsal for "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" last semester.

If you’re looking to add a class or two to your fall schedule at Kellogg Community College that will challenge you personally or artistically while also being fun and boosting your confidence and interpersonal skills, consider taking a theatre class!

Below are two theatre classes offered at KCC this fall, followed by the course descriptions as listed in the College’s current Academic Catalog.

THEA 121: Theatre Appreciation 1 (3 credits)

1 to 2:20 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays
Aug. 27 through Dec. 10, 2015

To be held in room 201 of the newly renovated Davidson Visual Performing Arts Center

Humanities course in theatre as an art, stressing the universality of mans desires, problems and dreams. This includes a study of the social trends which influenced the work of the playwrights and designers and contemporary methods of theatrical expression. Humanities elective.

THEA 218: Acting 1 (3 credits)

10 to 11:20 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays
Aug. 31 through Dec. 14

To be held on the stage of the recently renovated Binda Performing Arts Center

A study of the techniques of acting. Each student is given individualized instruction in developing acting techniques. Laboratory work includes participation in classroom and College productions.

Theatre instructor Brad Poer says that in addition to what’s in the course descriptions in the catalog, a key point of emphasis should be that the courses — and Acting 1 in particular — are intended to help everyone, regardless of major, with leadership, teamwork and creative soft skills.
