Staged Reading Course Promotes Interactive Theater in Classrooms Across Campus

The new Staged Reading course offers a mechanism for bringing theatre into classrooms across campus, while giving students the opportunity to work on a performance style that is being used more frequently.

In addition to four play-readings throughout the semester, actors from the Staged Reading course are performing 3-5 minute scenes in other classrooms.

Instructors interested in having a performance occur in their class can contact Dana Smith, associate professor of theatre, at Also, instructors with any suggestions of titles that might enhance their courses, either as classroom scenes or full staged readings, should contact
Smith so they may be incorporated in the spring semester if the Staged Reading course is offered again.

“A Doll’s House,” which was performed Sept. 19, was the first staged reading performance of the semester. Other performances include “West Moon Street” Oct. 17, “Chamber Music” Nov. 14, and “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” Dec. 5. For more information, contact Smith or College of Arts and Sciences Secretary Diane Moore at 785.4417.
