Virtual Play Creation
Department of Theatre and Dance
Students work in groups to write, direct and perform a piece of virtual theatre with the goal to create a set of "best practices" for virtual theatre as a partnership with the Pheonix Theatre. Students are divided into three groups to pitch three unique Zoom play proposals and develop one selected proposal into a 1-3 minute, 3-6 minute, and finally an 8-20 minute play. Each group will present their full play at the end of the semester in a virtual play showcase put on by the class. Throughout the semester, students complete both self-assessments and peer assessments to measure professionalism, problem-solving, collaboration, adaptability, and resilience.
