Students in this class will work together to write an original sketch show. Students will be held to weekly deadlines in order to generate material to be featured in the show. Students will also get the experience of generating material collaboratively with others.
Students will be expected to devote time to writing and rewriting material outside of class. Students will also get the experience of rehearsing, blocking, and producing sketches for the stage.
The culmination of Sketch 301 will be the performance of a sketch show comprised of student-generated material.
PLEASE NOTE: Students will be writing for a predetermined cast, not for themselves. The focus of the class is on writing, rewriting and producing sketches for the stage.
Sketch 301 also includes a mandatory Tech Rehearsal before the final performance. Students must be available to attend the Tech Rehearsal
in order to participate in the show and pass the course. Please check to make sure that you are available for the tech rehearsal before signing up for the course.
Students must bring a sketch to the FIRST session of class. This sketch should be written for the stage and no longer than four pages. This first sketch should be written utilizing the concept of the "Game of the Scene," taught in Sketch 101 and Sketch 201. Students should be prepared to devote time outside of class to completing new writing assignments for every session.
Course meets for 8 sessions, each 3 hours long. There is a class performance after the final session and a mandatory tech rehearsal.
Must be 18 years of age or older to enroll. Please note that all courses are non-refundable. For more detailed information, you can check out our Training Center Policies.
