International Study-Abroad Intensive during January Break UPDATE: We recorded this session. It is available for viewing here. Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, September 6, from 10:10 to 11:25 we will be holding a panel discussion. We will be featuring performers who have attended the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin. All of the performers featured will be alumni of Plymouth State University. The Gaiety School of Acting was founded in 1986 and trains actors for theatre, film and television. The school is in Dublin, Ireland. This year they are including a Design & Technology component.

Acting course culminating in a public performance 13238 TH-4810.01 Acting III Tuesday/Thursday 12:00 – 1:15 This is the first time that this concept has been taught at Plymouth State University. Because it is an unusual concept, we want to be sure everyone who might be interested is aware. We will consider signing students in who may not have all of the prerequisites – please do inquire if you are interested! Acting 3 is the highest-level acting class offered at PSU, readying you for moving out into the professional world. Although we will do some skills work, the focus is that each student will write/create, stage and perform a short solo show, going for 20 minutes. The work on this will begin from Day 1, be deeply developed over the semester, and end with 1-2 public performances—we have tentatively secured approval to show them at the Museum for the White Mountains. Everything you need fits into a small suitcase. No special lighting, no sound effects unless you make them yourself—there will be no tech support. Just you, your body and words, creating a world with your audience. This piece can be a calling card, combined with others to tour or put up a show Read More
Scheduled: Oct 19 from Noon-1:15PM A group of about six alumni from the PSU Theatre program will be convening on Zoom. The group has extensive past and current experience working in various capacities on cruise ships. We will be discussing how to get into this work, the pros and cons, and anything else that comes up between the panel and attending students. This roundtable discussion is synchronized for the course Technology for Theatre Professionals this semester. However, the zoom meeting will be open for all theatre majors and minors.
