is the policy of the Department of Drama that all students registered in Drama courses are required to see each Departmental Major
Production. This policy facilitates informed classroom discussion on a broad variety of subjects and issues by ensuring that
every student in the classroom has theatrical experiences in common.
Class. 1 ½ hour per week. Monday. Room 102.
Attending the class is expected, since I value your input to our
discussions. However, things do come up that may take priority. You may miss two classes without penalty. After two absences your
attendance grade will be reduced 5% (and we will chat). For example; miss 1 class no penalty, miss 2 classes no penalty, miss 3 classes
-5% and then -1% more for each additional class missed. I suggest you save them for special occasions. Note: being late to class twice
times will equal one absence. Regardless, projects are due when specified whether you are in class or not.
Labs and assignments.
may miss 2 labs without penalty as above, but projects and assignments are due when specified, regardless. Please wear appropriate
clothing: no open shoes or sandals in the scene shop or theatre, long hair tied back etc. (You will not be allowed to attend). On
the days we are in the scene shop, you will very likely get dirty--so be prepared!
