Total credits for a concentration in Theater: 15.

The two linked courses culminate in ticketed, revenue-producing, multiple public performances in MICA’s BBOX in the spring semester, usually in mid-April.

PERF303 From Text to Performance is required of all students who enroll in The Play’s the Thing for a given year. The course is devoted to an intensive study of the script(s) for that year’s production. Students earn the second three credits in a given year in one of two linked FA303 courses—FA303 Technical Design, for those students selected for set, lighting, sound and prop design and construction, or FA303 Production for those who have been selected as actors, stage managers, costume/makeup designers and producers, and publicity/marketing designers and producers.
